Design Software for Structural Timber Connections

Design of Timber Connections

Are you planning a timber connection in your project? For thousands of years, timber has been a constant companion of people– whether as a safe home for the family or for the building magnificent structures. Who can resist the natural charm?

For the design of timber connections, there are the relevant add-on modules for both RFEM and RSTAB, which do a lot more than just facilitate your work. Yith this special software, you can design, for example, connections where timber members are connected indirectly with steel plates or directly with slant screws.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

You get the largest scope of functions with RFEM. The structural analysis software RFEM 5 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. Is your project a bit more extensive and includes different elements? The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as to model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

The structural frame and truss analysis software RSTAB 8 has similar functions as the FEA software RFEM 5. However, RSTAB specializes in frame, truss, and beam structures. This special attention implies a particularly clear user interface and simple operation of the software. It is not for nothing that for many years, RSTAB has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models.

Connection Design

Due to a large number of add-on modules, Dlubal Software provides you with a program structure that you can tailor to your needs. Numerous add-on modules for the connection design in steel and timber structures can be found here:

    Ester Tower in Jerusalem, Israel

    © Timber Design s.r.o.

    A wooden lookout tower called Ester, designed by renowned Czech architect Martin Rajniš, was inaugurated in Jerusalem in mid-November 2017. This tower, designed in the shape of a cactus by renowned Czech architect Martin Rajniš, is located in the complex of a former hospital from 1887, not far from the old town walls ...
