Dlubal Software Products for Various Industries

No matter what industry your project is in: With the benchmark-setting Dlubal software, it has a solid foundation.

One of the greatest strengths of RFEM and RSTAB is the modular software concept. Add the relevant add-ons to the main programs in order to customize them specifically to match the individual features of your building materials.

Simply select the relevant industry and find out which programs and add-ons are useful for your structural calculations.

Concrete Structures

The Dlubal structural analysis software RFEM and RSTAB allow you to analyze and design reinforced concrete structures. Choose from our software offer, depending on whether you design a pure beam structure (RSTAB) or a structure with plates, walls or shells (RFEM).

Steel Structures

We are happy to support you with our software in your structural steel projects. The Dlubal structural engineering programs RFEM and RSTAB are the optimal solution for your structural analysis and design of steel structures. Complete successfully your projects, such as steel buildings, steel halls, scaffolding, bridges, or other steel structures.

Timber Structures

If you process timber structure projects, you are absolutely right here. The Dlubal programs RFEM and RSTAB are perfectly suited for your structural analysis and design of three-dimensional timber structures. Discover a wide range of options for the design of simple or complex timber structures, regardless of whether you design frame and truss structures or surface elements, such as cross-laminated timber panels.

Moreover, the Dlubal program family RX‑TIMBER allows you to quickly and efficiently calculate and design models, such as glued-laminated timber trusses, timber frames, purlins, and many others.

Masonry Structures

The Dlubal structural analysis software RFEM is the perfect choice for your masonry structures. Regardless of whether you want to analyze and design pure frame and truss structures, or walls and shells, you will find the ideal solution with us.

Aluminum and Lightweight Structures

Design your aluminum or lightweight structures easily with the Dlubal structural analysis programs. RFEM and RSTAB provides you with a wide range of suitable cross-sections for this. Select, for example, I‑sections, channels, T‑sections, rectangular hollow sections, square tubes, circular pipes, flat steel, and more. The design is carried out according to Eurocode 9 with numerous National Annexes or according to the American standard ADM 2020.

Furthermore, you can also find the initial shapes of cable and membrane structures and easily perform the relevant calculations.

Buildings

Regardless of whether you design a residential building, school, or a completely different project – use our structural analysis programs to calculate your buildings made of reinforced concrete, steel, and timber. In RFEM and RSTAB, you can perform both static and dynamic analysis of your models.

Use the relevant add-ons to carry out stability analyses in addition to the ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state, and fire resistance design checks.

Process Manufacturing Plants

The Dlubal software RFEM and RSTAB are the best choice for you structural analysis and design of industrial structures. These are, for example, chemical plants, production halls, tanks, piping systems, large filters, and many others.

Use RSTAB to design member structures and RFEM for additional plates, slabs, shells, and solid elements.

Piping Systems

For everything related to pipes, RFEM is at your side. It enables you to model, perform structural and dynamic analysis as well as design of piping systems. Specific piping components, such as valves, reducers, fittings, flanges, tees, expansion joints, and many others, are included.

You can perform the piping analysis for the entire structure, that is, in interaction with the supporting structure.

Bridge Structures

A glance at our customer projects shows how many users rely on RFEM and RSTAB when analyzing and designing bridges. It does not matter whether they are made of steel, reinforced concrete, timber, or other materials.

Find the individually suitable add-ons for your project from our extensive offer. They allow you to easily perform dynamic analyses and the required design checks, such as ultimate limit state design, serviceability limit state design, stability analysis, as well as considering construction stages.

Cranes and Craneways

To model and analyze cranes, RFEM and RSTAB are the ideal candidates for your project. You will be delighted by the powerful features, such as the consideration of member and joint nonlinearities, cable pulleys, and many other features that support your detailed analysis.

Our stand-alone program CRANEWAY is the all-rounder for the design of crane runway girders for traveling or suspension cranes according to EN 1993-6, including all necessary design checks.

Towers and Masts

If your project involves towers or masts, the Dlubal programs RFEM and RSTAB are your helpful companions during planning. Numerous additional modules offer you individual adaptation options, such as automatic structure and load generation, effective length determination and design according to Eurocode.

It is possible to model and design lattice towers, such as 5G cell towers, transmission towers, or observation towers, as well as the individual tower and mast structures.

Glass Structures

The RFEM software by Dlubal is as modern and diverse as the building material of glass. You can use it to analyze and design glass structures separately or as part of the entire model. In the extensive material library, you find a large number of commercially available glass types, foils, and gases.

You can support the glass surfaces defined in RFEM on lines and nodes and even model them as special solids. The results include stresses in surfaces and solids, among others.

Tensile Membrane Structures

Calculating membrane and cable structures is no longer a problem when using the Dlubal structural analysis software. Use RFEM for form-finding, as well as for a structural analysis and a determination of cutting patterns.

The calculation is performed according to the large deformation analysis. When determining the cutting patterns, RFEM also considers the user‑defined intersection lines and compensation dimensions.

Cable and Tensile Structures

Tighten the ropes for your projects without worry. The Dlubal structural analysis programs RFEM and RSTAB enables you to design cable and tensile structures as well as their substructures. It does not matter whether the cables are prestressed or not.

The helpful Form-Finding add-on is at your side in RFEM. Use this add-on to find the shape of your cable structure before performing the calculation. Furthermore, you can combine the cables with member, surface, and solid elements.

Laminate, Sandwich & CLT Structures

If you want your laminate or sandwich surfaces to withstand the usage, you can rely on stress and deflection analyses in the Dlubal structural analysis program RFEM. The calculation can consider shear coupling and is carried out according to the laminate theory.

You can use this design type, for example, for cross-laminated timber elements (CLT), fiber-reinforced plastics, such as FRP, GRP, GFRP, or carbon material, and many others.
