Analysis and Design Software for Concrete Structures

Structural Analysis and Design | Reinforced Concrete and Masonry Structures

Many engineers use the structural analysis programs by Dlubal Software to perform the calculations and designs of 2D and 3D reinforced concrete structures such as buildings, slabs, plates, walls, columns, beams, continuous beams, frames, shells, and silos.

The structural engineering FEA software RFEM and the frame analysis program RSTAB provide the possibility to analyze and design reinforced concrete structures. Whether you design 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.

FEA Structural Analysis and Design

The structural analysis program RFEM 6 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. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame Analysis Software

The structural frame analysis software RSTAB 9 has a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM. Due to the special design for beam structures, it is even easier to use and has been the first choice for structural engineers for years when it comes to pure member structural models

Design of Reinforced Concrete Members and Surfaces

The Concrete Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 allow you to design reinforced concrete members, columns, and surfaces (RFEM only). Furthermore, you can perform punching shear design and deformation analysis of surfaces in RFEM. The following standards are integrated in the add-on:

  • European Union EN 1992-1-1:2004 + A1:2014 (Eurocode 2 incl. National Annexes)
  • United States ACI 318-19 (US standard)
  • Canada CSA A23.3-19 (Canadian standard)
  • Russia SP 63.13330:2018 (Russian standard)

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).

Building Model

The Building Model add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to define and manipulate a building by means of stories. The stories can be adjusted in many ways afterwards. Information about the stories and also the entire model (center of gravity) is displayed in tables and graphics.

Consideration of Construction Stages

The Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to consider the construction process of structures (member, surface, and solid structures). Neglecting the influence of the construction process can lead to errors in the calculation of overall models. With the Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on, you can analyze these influences and consider them up to the point of the structural design.

Model Optimization Using Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The two-part Optimization & Costs / CO2 Emission Estimation add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 finds suitable parameters for parameterized models and blocks using the artificial intelligence (AI) technique of particle swarm optimization (PSO) to comply with common optimization criteria. Moreover, this add-on estimates the model costs or CO2 emissions by specifying unit costs or emissions per material definition for the structural model.

Nonlinear Design of Reinforced Concrete

The RF-CONCRETE NL add-on module for RFEM 5 performs physical and geometrical nonlinear calculation of beam and plate structures consisting of reinforced concrete. The RF-CONCRETE Deflect add-on module for RFEM 5 allows for analytical deformation analysis of plate structures consisting of reinforced concrete.

Foundation Design

The RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro add-on module designs single, bucket, and block foundations for all support forces arising in the model of RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8.

Data Exchange Interfaces

The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal Software can be integrated seamlessly into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. The large number of interfaces ensures the data exchange of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

The web service (programmable interface) can be used to read or write data from/to RFEM and RSTAB.
