Analysis & Design Software for Aluminum and Lightweight Structures

Structural Engineering Software for 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.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The successful structural analysis program RFEM 6 by Dlubal Software is the basis of a modular program family that you can customize and combine according to your precise requirements. In the main program RFEM, you can define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. Furthermore, you can create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

Use the Dlubal spatial frame & truss analysis software RSTAB 9 if you need a special solution tailored to beam, frame, and truss structures. Due to the special attention to such structures, it is even easier to use than the FEA software RFEM. This program has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models for many years.

Design of Aluminum Members According to Various Standards

Opt for the Aluminum Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 to keep your members stable and safe. The add-on designs aluminum members for the ultimate and serviceability limit state according to the standards:

  • European Union EN 1999-1-1:2013-12 (Eurocode 9)
  • United States ADM 2020 (US standard)

Consideration of Construction Stages

Stay on track of the construction process with the Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on for RFEM 6. In RFEM, this allows you to consider the construction process of structures (member, surface, and solid structures). Avoid potential mistakes when calculating entire models. These may easily arise when disregarding the influence of the construction process. With the helpful add-on, you can analyze the influences and consider them right up to the structural design.

Form-Finding and Analysis of Cable and Membrane Structures

RFEM provides various options for calculating cable and membrane structures. Choose the right method for your project:

The Form-Finding add-on for RFEM 6 finds an optimal shape of members subjected to axial forces and surface models subjected to tension.

The RF-CUTTING-PATTERN add-on module for RFEM 5 calculates and organizes the cutting pattern for membrane 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 allows you to exchange the data of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

Use the Webservice (a programmable interface) to read or write the data from or to RFEM and RSTAB.
