Design Software for Structural Steel Connections

Design of Steel Connections

In RFEM and RSTAB, there are powerful add-on modules for the design of steel connections.

For example, rigid and hinged beam connections, column bases, hollow sections and tower connections in steel structures are designed according to Eurocode 3.

FEM Analysis and Design of Structures

The structural analysis program RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. 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.

Analysis and Design of Beam Structures

The structural beam analysis program RSTAB determines internal forces, deformations and support reactions. For designs, there are various add-on modules considering the material and standard-specific circumstances. Due to the modular software system, it is possible to use the program package that perfectly meets your individual needs.

Design of Joints

Here you can find numerous add-on modules for the design of joints in steel and timber structures.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

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.

Support and Learning

Customer service is one of the fundamental pillars of the Dlubal Software company philosophy. We also offer you all the support you need for your daily work.

    Théâtre Marigny in Paris, France

    Roof Structure

    The historical building of Théâtre Marigny had to undergo renovation due to its serious defects of the roof structure which led to its closure in 2013.

    The metastable equilibrium resulted from unreliable planning which did not consider the effects of assymetrical load and the suspended ceiling on the roof structure during construction in 1925.
