Pushover Analysis Software
Structural engineering FEA software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. 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 analysis software provided by Dlubal can be seamlessly integrated into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. A variety of interfaces allows you to exchange data from digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.
The "Little Flower" monastery was built in 2015, situated in beautiful scenery of green meadows, mountains, and crystal-clear lakes.
The little monastery is equipped with 18 bedrooms, a chapel, a dining room, a kitchen, and a conference room.
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.
The multigenerational house with a lakeside view was built as an environmentally friendly timber structure and designed as a passive house.
The engineering office Pirmin Jung Deutschland GmbH, a customer of Dlubal Software, was in charge of structural analysis, among other things.
The butadiene storage tanks of the French company ARLANXEO Emulsion Rubber France, one of the biggest producers of NBR synthetic rubber in the world, had to be recalculated to comply with the seismic requirements of Eurocode 8.
In December 2013, a hotel with extraordinary architecture opened in Davos, Switzerland. The building is shaped like 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.
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.
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.

Pushover analysis is a nonlinear structural calculation for the seismic analysis of structures. The load pattern is inferred from the dynamic calculation of equivalent loads. These loads are increased incrementally until global failure of the structure occurs. The nonlinear behavior of a building is usually represented using plastic hinges.

The stiffness of gas given by the ideal gas law pV = nRT can be considered in the nonlinear dynamic analysis.
The calculation of gas is available for accelerograms and time diagrams for both the explicit analysis and the nonlinear implicit Newmark analysis. To determine the gas behaviour correctly, at least two FE layers for gas solids should be defined.
- Which tools are available for a pushover analysis?
- How can I adjust the number of decimal places in the standardized table values of a mode shape?
- How can I display the results of the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on module in the printout report?
- In RF‑/DYNAM Pro, the Rayleigh damping is available. How do I determine and use these factors?
- There are two solving methods for a linear time history analysis available in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on module. What is the difference between them?
- What method is applied in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module?
- In RF‑/DYNAM Pro, the "From self-weight of structure" option is available in a mass case. Is it always necessary to activate this option in order to consider the dead load of the structure?
- I have used the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on module to generate the governing result combinations of seismic loads. What is the next procedure to perform the design of the individual structural components?
- What should be considered when using a failure of columns under tension in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro – Equivalent Loads add-on module?
- After the calculation in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module, the size of my file has increased significantly. The performance has worsened enormously. What could be the reason for this?
