RSTAB - Structural Frame Analysis Software
Structural Engineering Analysis & Design Software
The 3D structural frame analysis program RSTAB is the ideal tool for the design of beam, frame, or truss structures consisting of steel, reinforced concrete, timber, aluminum, or other materials.
With RSTAB you can easily and quickly define a structural model and then calculate the internal forces, deformations, and support reactions. For further design, there are various add‑on modules available, considering structural data of specific materials and standards.
RSTAB - Powerful and Easy to Use
RSTAB is a powerful analysis and design software for 3D beam, frame, or truss structure calculations, reflecting the current state of the art and helping structural engineers to meet requirements in modern civil engineering.
RSTAB is the basis of a modular software system and provides intuitive modeling of simple and complex structures due to it's ingenious input technique. The efficient RSTAB solver allows for linear and nonlinear calculations of internal forces, deformations, and support reactions.
For further designs, there are the add-on modules available, considering structural data of specific materials and standards. Due to the modular software system, you can combine various products of Dlubal Software in a program package that meets your individual needs.
Due to a wide range of interfaces, RSTAB provides perfect interaction between CAD and structural analysis programs in Building Information Modeling (BIM). Thus, the bidirectional data exchange between RSTAB and the programs Tekla Structures, Autodesk Revit and Bentley ISM is possible, for example.
"“It is really fun to work with Dlubal. The structure generation and modification can proceed smoothly:
- Manageability of functions in the menu and movability in space
- Data transparency: checks, options to modify and transfer data
I am pleased that I have switched to Dlubal! "

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Is it possible to renumber cross-sections and materials in RFEM and RSTAB?
- For a tapered member, I get the error message "Invalid (incompatible) arrangement ...". What can I do?
- I have defined a wind profile for RWIND Simulation up to a height of 100 m. Is the wind profile dependent on the size of the wind tunnel?
- As part of my bachelor thesis, I would like to integrate the RSTAB printout report into LaTeX. There, you can completely integrate a PDF document as shown in the viewer. This also works with any PDF document, but not with the printout report created by RSTAB. What could be the reason?
- How can I set the deformation coefficient kdef in the program?
- I would like to design an aluminum or lightweight structure. Is it possible to use RFEM or RSTAB for this?
- How is the load distributed to the members in the angular axis method if members are excluded from the load application?
- A rigid member should only be able to absorb tensile forces or only compressive forces. What are the options for considering these nonlinearities in the calculation?
- The installation of a Dlubal Software program is not possible due to the following message: "Program unsafe, protection by Microsoft Defender SmartScreen." How can I install the program?
- How can I perform a stability analysis for a tapered member?
