Structural and Stress Analysis Software for Pipelines
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.

Wind Simulation and Wind Load Generation
Do your structures have to withstand every gust of wind? Then it is best to use the Dlubal stand-alone program RWIND 2. It is particularly recommended for complex model shapes. There are wind flows around all structures simulated in a digital wind tunnel.
You can easily import your generated wind loads acting on these objects into RFEM or RSTAB. Thus, you can continue your project there.
Modeling of Pipelines
Use RF‑PIPING for RFEM 5 to efficiently model pipelines and to define the loads conforming to the relevant standards.
With the powerful add-on module, 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
Keep an eye on your piping systems. The reliable add-on module RF‑PIPING Design for RFEM 5 compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to EN 13480‑3, ASME B31.1, and ASME B31.3.
Dynamic Frequency Analysis and Seismic Design
Even if the ground shakes, your structures will remain stable. For the dynamic analysis of piping systems, you can use the add-ons 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 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.

Online Manual | RFEM 6
- How do I change the default settings for the units so they are preset in every new file?
- How can I quickly delete the unused elements (for example, cross-sections) from my model with one click?
- In the case of stairs with a complicated geometry, it is often difficult to design welds by using the analytical methods. How can I do this with RFEM?
