Pushover Analysis Software

Determination of Pushover Curves in RFEM

Pushover analysis is a nonlinear structural calculation for 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 behaviour of a building is usually represented by using plastic hinges.

In RFEM, the plastic hinges according to the definition of FEMA 356 are available for the material of steel. You can easily generate pushover curves with the load increment option in RFEM and calculation diagrams.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

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.

Pushover Analysis

In RFEM, it is possible to determine a pushover curve or a capacity curve and export it to Excel.

Add-ons for Dynamic Analysis

For dynamic analysis, there are add-ons available for the determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes as well as for seismic analysis.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

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.
