Structural and Stress Analysis Software for Pipelines

For Structural and Dynamic Analysis of Piping Systems

For pipe modeling and design, the RF‑PIPING and RF‑PIPING Design add‑on modules are available in RFEM 5.

As soon as the pipelines are supported on auxiliary or supporting structures, it is recommended to carry out the modeling on the entire structure. The interaction between the piping system and the supporting structure allows for a quick and realistic analysis and design.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The structural analysis software RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular program family. The basic 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.

Modeling of Pipelines

RF-PIPING for RFEM 5 is used to model pipelines and to define the loads conforming to relevant standards.

It is possible to define specific piping components such as valves, reducers, fittings, flanges, tees, expansion joints, and others, and consider them together with the supporting structure.

Design of Pipelines

The RF‑PIPING Design add-on module for RFEM 5 compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to ASME B31.1, ASME B31.3, and EN 13480‑3.

Dynamic Frequency Analysis and Seismic Design

For dynamic analysis of piping systems, there are add-ons available for the determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes, vibration analysis, and the generation of equivalent earthquake loads.

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 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.
