Structural analysis software for timber structures

Structural Analysis of Timber Structures

Die Statik-Programme RFEM  und RSTAB eignen sich ausgezeichnet für die statische Berechnung und Bemessung von zwei- oder dreidimensionalen Holz-Konstruktionen wie z. B. Holzbinder, Holzrahmen, Fachwerkbinder, Brettschichtholzbinder, Holzsandwichplatten, Holztafelwände, Holzhäuser, Holzbrücken, Holztürme, Holztreppen.

Whether it is frame structures or surface elements such as cross-laminated timber panels, you have many options when designing simple or complex timber structures.

  • Membrane Roofing
    The combination of glued laminated timber and steel is ideal for many interesting projects. The membrane roofing of the grandstand on the banks of the Elbe in Dresden for more than 200,000 guests is an example of this.

    With the structural analysis program RFEM, the structural engineer is able to effectively perform structural analyzes of membrane structures made of timber and steel.

FEA Structural Analysis and Design

The structural analysis program RFEM 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. Mixed systems are possible as well as the handling of solid and contact elements.

Structural Analysis & Design of Frames & Trusses

The structural frame and truss analysis software RSTAB has a similar range of functions as the FEA program RFEM. Due to the special cutting to frame structures, it is even easier to use and is often used for calculations and designs in timber construction.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

The RWIND Simulation stand-alone program is recommended for complex structures. Utilize this program to simulate wind flow (digital wind tunnel) around buildings or any other objects and generating wind loads, i.e. forces acting on these objects based on CFD.

Import the generated wind loads acting on these objects to the structural analysis and design software RFEM or RSTAB.

Timber Design According to Various Standards

The following add-on modules perform all typical limit state, stability and serviceability limit state designs for timber.

Design of Laminate Surfaces

RF-LAMINATE performs stress and deflection analysis of laminate surfaces such as cross‑laminated timber plates (CLT).

Structural Design of Timber Connections

Here you can find numerous add-on modules for the design of joints in steel and timber structures.

Stand-Alone Programs RX-TIMBER

Stand-alone programs of the RX‑TIMBER family perform designs of the ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state and fire resistance for different structural components according to Eurocode 5.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal can be seamlessly integrated into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. A variety of interfaces allows you to exchange data from digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.
