# Is it worthwhile to calculate continuous beams with the structural analysis software RFEM or RSTAB?

Even simple structures such as continuous beams or 2D frames can be quickly and effectively modeled, calculated and designed according to various standards in RFEM and RSTAB. For such models, several model generators are particularly recommended (see figures).

After entering the cross-section parameters, loads and geometry details, the model generator automatically creates a model including load cases (see the video file).
