Implemented American Standards

1

Automatic Creation of Combinations in RFEM and RSTAB

In RFEM and RSTAB, the load and result combinations are automatically created according to the American standards ASCE/SEI 7‑16, ASCE/SEI 7‑16 (NDS), ACI 318‑19, and IBC 2018.

2

Design of Reinforced Concrete Members, Columns, and Surfaces According to Standard ACI 318

ACI 318 for RFEM/RSTAB extends the various concrete modules with the American standards ACI 318‑19 for reinforced concrete design.

RFEM is in a class of its own

“I’ve used many FEA programs over the years and I would rank RFEM at the top. Very powerful with many options for modeling and displaying information while still being intuitive and easy to use from a common sense standpoint. In my opinion, RFEM is in a class of its own.”
