Structural Analysis & Design Software for Buildings

Software for Structural Analysis and Design of 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.

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.

Add-ons and Add-on Modules for Design of Buildings

When designing buildings, Dlubal offers you a selection of add-ons. Depending on the material used, choose the add-on for the industry of steel structures , concrete structures, or timber structures to carry out precise structural analysis and design.

Structural Dynamic Analysis

To keep your buildings safe even under stormy conditions, the Dynamic Analysis add-ons for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 are here for you. Use them to perform seismic design, vibration analysis of buildings, machine foundation design, natural frequency analysis for bridges and chimneys, and many other dynamic calculations.

Geotechnical Analysis using FEM

The Geotechnical Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 uses the properties from soil samples to determine the soil body to be analyzed. The realistic determination of the soil conditions significantly influences the quality of the structural analysis of buildings (soil-structure interaction).

Generation, Analysis, and Evaluation of Building Models

The Building Model add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to define and manipulate your building by means of stories. A great advantage is the possibility to adjust them retroactively and flexibly. Information about the stories and the entire model (a center of gravity) is displayed in tables and graphics.

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.

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