The structural analysis programs RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9 are the optimal solution for the structural analysis and design of steel structures such as steel buildings, steel halls, scaffoldings, bridges, silos, cranes, crane runways, towers, sunrooms, and so on.

The video briefly shows the most important steel design features of both programs.
