Dynamic and Seismic Analysis Software
The structural analysis software RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular program family. The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.
The structural frame analysis software RSTAB 9 has a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM. Due to the special attention to beam, frame, or truss structures, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models.
The Modal Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 allows you to determine natural frequencies and mode shapes of member, surface, and solid models.
In the Response Spectrum Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, the seismic analysis is performed using the multi-modal response spectrum analysis. The spectra required for this can be created in compliance with the standards or user-defined. From this, the equivalent static forces are generated.
The RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 9 performs the analysis of forced vibrations including the multi-modal response spectrum analysis and the time history analysis.
RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 is an extension of the add-on modules RF-/DYNAM Pro - Natural Vibrations and RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations (linear time history analysis).
The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal Software can be integrated seamlessly into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. The large number of interfaces ensures the data exchange of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.
The web service (programmable interface) can be used to read or write data from/to RFEM and RSTAB.
The FC Campus ("Cube A" and "Cube B"), located directly at the A5 exit Karlsruhe-Nord, consists of two adjacent structural cubes at a slight offset, which leave a lasting impression due to their unique façade design.
The removable grandstands are surrounded on three sides by precast seating risers in the north endzone of the Los Angeles Football club soccer stadium. The grandstands are a free-standing system. The system is comprised of aluminum trusses, which are demountable from aluminum towers.
Palazzo Meridia in Nice is currently the tallest CLT office building in France. Dlubal customer CBS-Lifteam was responsible for the planning, supply, and installation of the timber structure.
This slender timber pedestrian bridge was constructed over the Bow River in Banff. At 13 ft wide and 38 ft long, the bridge is complete with a 263-foot clear span, which is perhaps the longest of its kind for a timber bridge.
One of the world's highest timber structures is a lookout tower on the Pyramidenkogel, a mountain in Carinthia, Austria.
The spiral-shaped tower with a height of 328 ft provides a breathtaking view over the Alps-Adriatic region.
In December 2013, a hotel with extraordinary architecture opened in Davos, Switzerland. The building has the shape of a “Golden Egg” and is situated on a mountainside.
The hotel is elliptical in shape with all corners rounded, and is constructed with reinforced concrete.
A timber apartment complex with appealing architecture has been built in the Italian town of Brescia. Four housing complexes include a total of 72 housing units.
For the Lombard Institute for Residential Buildings (ALER), this was the first project carried out in wood.
An extraordinary structure was built in Chile: "Temple of Light", one of eight Bahá'í temples in the world.
The shape of the temple resembles a nine‑petalled blossom of a lotus flower. The building has a diameter of about 111.5 ft and a height of 98.4 ft.
