Design Software for Structural Steel Connections

Design of Steel Connections

For RFEM and RSTAB, powerful add-ons and add-on modules are available for the design of steel connections.

For example, it is possible to analyze steel connections using an FE model or to design rigid and hinged beam connections, column bases, hollow sections and tower connections in steel structures according to Eurocode 3.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The structural analysis software RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular program family. The RFEM main program 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.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

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.

Connection Design

Here you will find numerous add-ons for steel connections as well as add-on modules for the connection design in steel and timber structures.

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.
