Implemented US Standards

1

Automatic Generation of Combinations in RFEM and RSTAB

Are you planning your structures for the USA? Then you have come to the right place. In RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, you can automatically generate load and result combinations according to the US standards ASCE 7/SEI, ASCE/SEI 7 (NDS), ACI 318, and IBC.

2

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

When working with reinforced concrete, you are supported by the Concrete Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9. Here, you can design reinforced concrete members, columns, and surfaces according to the American standard for reinforced concrete design ACI 318.

3

Steel Design According to AISC 360, AISC 341, and AISI S100

The Steel Design add-on '''for RFEM 6/RSTAB 9''' performs the ultimate and serviceability limit state design of members according to the American standard ANSI/AISC 360.

Furthermore, you can also design cold-formed steel sections according to the US standard AISI S100.

4

Design of Steel Joints According to ANSI/AISC 360

In the Steel Joints add-on, you can design connections according to the American standard ANSI/AISC 360. The design procedure Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and Allowable Stress Design (ASD) are already integrated.

5

Design of Aluminum Members According to ADM

Make sure you design your aluminum structures safely and in accordance with the standards. The '''Aluminum Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9''' performs the ultimate limit state and the serviceability limit state design of members according to the US standard ADM.

6

Design of Timber Members According to ANSI/AWC NDS

If you design timber structures, then this way, please. The Timber Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 performs the ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state, and fire resistance design checks according to the American standard ANSI/AWC NDS.

7

Seismic Design According to IBC, ASCE/SEI

The safety of your structures even under turbulent conditions is easy and efficient to design using these add-ons.

The Modal Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 allows you to determine natural frequencies and mode shapes.

In the Response Spectrum Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, the seismic analysis is performed for you using the multi-modal response spectrum analysis. Among others, the following US standards are implemented:

  • IBC and ASCE/SEI 7
8

Design of Multilayer Surfaces (such as Laminate, CLT) According to ANSI/AWC NDS

The Multilayer Surfaces (such as Laminate, CLT) add-on allows you to define multilayer surface structures, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), and perform the design in the Timber Design add-on according to the American standard ANSI/AWC NDS.

9

Design of Indirect Timber Connections According to NDS

For connections between steel and timber, you find the right solution here. In the RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8, you can design the joints indirectly connected by means of steel plates according to the American standard ANSI/AWC NDS (LRFD and ASD).

10

Stress Analysis of Pipelines According to ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3

Safe pipelines are available for you here. RF-PIPING Design is used for the precise design of pipelines. The module compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3, among other standards.

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.”
