Standards

Multiple Standards Available!

Standards and codes are important. Where do you plan your project and what do you have to pay attention to? When it comes to international standards, the Dlubal programs are reliable companions for customers from all over the world. You will find numerous standards integrated in RFEM and RSTAB, whereby the corresponding add-ons allow you to design steel, reinforced concrete, and timber structures.

Here you will find an overview of the standards available in the programs for the respective countries.

  • Steel Hall
  • Dlubal Software for Calculation and Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures
  • Dlubal Software for Structural Analysis and Design of Timber Structures
  • Dlubal Software for Calculation and Design of Cranes and Crane Runways
  • Dlubal Software for Structural Analysis and Design of Towers and Masts

US Standards (AISC, ACI, AWC, ADM, ASCE 7, IBC)

Design steel, concrete, aluminum, and timber structures in RFEM and RSTAB according to the corresponding American standards. Moreover, you can analyze combined structures consisting of various materials.

In addition to the structural analysis, you can also automatically combine loads and perform seismic design according to the IBC and ASCE 7.

Canadian Standards (CSA)

RFEM and RSTAB are also at your side for reliable design according to Canadian standards. The corresponding design standards for steel, concrete, and timber structures are available in the programs.

In addition to the structural analysis, you can also automatically combine loads and perform seismic design according to the IBC and ASCE 7.

Mexican Standards (RCDF, CFE Sismo 08)

Mexico is as contrasting as the landscape: For the construction industry, there are uniform standards. They include the Mexican steel construction standard NTC‑RCDF (2004) that is available for your design in the Dlubal structural analysis programs. Furthermore, we provide you with the option to perform seismic analysis according to the Mexican standard CFE Sismo 08.

Eurocodes (EC)

Use the Dlubal software for planning according to European standards. The FEA program RFEM and the frame & truss analysis program RSTAB by Dlubal allow you to perform consistent structural design according to Eurocode for reinforced concrete structures, steel structures, timber structures, aluminum structures, and many other industries.

You can carry out the planning process continuously according to the relevant European standards, from the automatic generation of load and result combinations to the generation of wind and snow loads.

Brazilian Standards (NBR)

Dlubal Software is at home all over the world. Users from Brazil are also among our customers. In the structural analysis programs RFEM and RSTAB, you can thus design steel structures according to the Brazilian standard ABNT NBR 8800.

Furthermore, you can design timber structures according to the Brazilian standard for timber structures NBR 7190.

British Standards (BS EN, BS)

Design your steel structures in RFEM and RSTAB quickly and efficiently according to BS EN 1993‑1‑1 (Eurocode 3: British Annex). Moreover, you can automatically create load and result combinations according to Eurocode 0 or BS 5950‑1.

Australian Standards (AS)

You can count on RFEM and RSTAB when performing design of steel structures according to the Australian standard AS 4100‑1998. Moreover, you can easily perform seismic analyses according to AS 1170.4‑2007.

South African Standards (SANS)

Dlubal Software also reaches the southernmost point of Africa. In the structural analysis programs RFEM and RSTAB, we enable you to design steel structures according to the South African standard SANS 10162‑1:2011.

German Standards (DIN)

In Germany, structures are designed according to Eurocodes with the corresponding German National Annexes (DIN EN).

If you need to recalculate existing structures, it may be necessary to work with DIN standards that are no longer valid. Therefore, Dlubal Software provides you with the solution for these standards as well.

Swiss Standards (SIA)

High mountain landscapes are not an obstacle for Dlubal Software. The Dlubal program family has also implemented set standards for Switzerland. The Swiss standards for steel, reinforced concrete, and timber structures help you when performing design in the Dlubal structural analysis software. According to SIA 261, you can also carry out the seismic analysis.

The automatic combination of loads accordance to the standards SIA 260 and SIA 260 | Timber makes your work even easier. |

Chinese Standards (GB, HK)

If your structures find their place in China, you can use the Chinese building standards available in RFEM and RSTAB. They can be found in the areas of steel, timber, and reinforced concrete. Furthermore, you can combine loads automatically according to the standard GB 50009 and to perform seismic analyses according to GB 50011.

For steel structures, there is also the Standard for Steel Structures 2011 (Buildings Department – Hong Kong).

Indian Standards (IS)

India is a land of diversity. In RFEM and RSTAB, you have the option to automatically combine loads according to the Indian standard IS 800. It will save you a lot of work. Furthermore, you can perform the design of steel structures according to the standard IS 800 as well as the seismic analysis according to IS 1893.

Russian Standards (SP)

Russia has the standard SP 63.13330 for design of reinforced concrete structures and the standard SP 16.13330 for design of steel structures. You can also find them in RFEM and RSTAB. Did you know? RFEM/RSTAB and RF‑/STEEL SP are certified in Russia.
