Fascinating customer projects designed with the Dlubal structural analysis software.
The structural analysis software RFEM and RSTAB allow you to analyze and design reinforced concrete structures. Whether you are designing a pure beam structure (RSTAB) or a structure with plates, walls or shells (RFEM), you can choose from a wide range of programs by Dlubal Software.
The structural engineering programs RFEM and RSTAB are perfectly suited for the structural analysis and design of 3D timber structures. Whether you are designing beam structures or surface elements, such as cross‑laminated timber plates, there are various options for simple and complex timber structures.
Furthermore, the RX‑TIMBER program family allows you to quickly and efficiently calculate and design models, such as glued-laminated timber trusses, timber frames, purlins, and many others.
The structural analysis software RFEM and RSTAB allow you to analyze and design masonry structures. Depending on whether you design pure frame and truss structures (RSTAB) or structures with walls and shells (RFEM), Dlubal Software offers the ideal solution.
For the design of aluminum structures, RFEM and RSTAB include all standard cross-sections such as I‑sections, channels, T‑sections, rectangular hollow sections, square tubes, circular tubes, flat steel, and many others. The design is carried out according to the American standard ADM 2020, or Eurocode 9, including numerous National Annexes.
For cable and membrane structures, the initial shape can be found and the relevant calculations performed.
Utilize the structural analysis and design software RFEM and RSTAB to perform structural and dynamic analysis and design of reinforced concrete, steel, and timber buildings.
The corresponding add-on modules perform the design of the ultimate limit state, the serviceability limit state, and the fire resistance, as well as stability analysis.
RFEM and RSTAB are ideal for the structural design and analysis of industrial structures. These are, for example, chemical plants, production halls, tanks, piping systems, large filters, and many others.
RSTAB allows for the design of member structures and RFEM for additional plate, wall, shell, and solid elements.
RFEM allows for modeling and structural and dynamic analysis as well as design of piping systems (including piping components such as valves, reducers, flanges, tees, and others).
Piping analysis can be performed for the entire structure; that is, in interaction with the supporting structure.
Many users rely on RFEM and RSTAB when analyzing and designing bridges consisting of steel, reinforced concrete, timber, or other materials.
By using the helpful add-on modules, it is possible to generate influence lines, moving loads on members and surfaces, and more. It is also possible to perform dynamic analysis as well as the required stability analysis, serviceability limit state design, fatigue design, and buckling analysis.
Due to the possibility of 3D modeling, RFEM and RSTAB are ideal for the design of cranes. The detailed analysis is supported by features such as consideration of member and release nonlinearities, cable pulleys, and more.
With the stand-alone program CRANEWAY, crane runway girders for traveling or suspension cranes can be designed according to EN 1993‑6, including all required designs.
It is possible to design lattice towers with RFEM and RSTAB (such as 5G cell towers, transmission towers, and observation towers). The corresponding add-on modules provide a wide range of options, from automatic generation of structures and loading to the determination of effective lengths and design according to Eurocode.
It is also possible to model and analyze individual tower and mast structures (for example, 5G phone masts).
In RFEM, it is possible to design and analyze glass structures separately or as a part of the entire model. The extensive material library contains a large number of commercially available glass types, foils, and gases.
Glass surfaces defined in RFEM can be supported on lines and nodes and even modeled as special solids. The results include stresses in surfaces and solids.
The structural analysis software RFEM allows for form-finding, structural analysis, and determination of cutting patterns of tensile membrane and cable structures.
The calculation is performed according to the large deformation analysis. When determining the cutting patterns, user‑defined intersection lines and compensation dimensions are considered.
Design your cable and tensile structures or their substructures with the structural analysis and design software RFEM and RSTAB. You can calculate the cables with prestress or without prestress.
In RFEM, you can use the Form-Finding add-on to search for the shape of the cable structure before performing the calculation. In addition, it is possible to combine the cables with member, surface, and solid elements.
In RFEM, it is possible to perform a stress and deflection analysis of laminate and sandwich surfaces. The calculation can consider shear coupling and is carried out according to the laminate theory.
It can be applied to the design of cross-laminated timber plates (CLT), fiber-reinforced plastics (for example FRP, GRP, GFRP, carbon material) and many others.
