I have to dimension a wall bracket (steel brackets). I have modeled it as surface components in RFEM. The question: Which module can be used to calculate these steel brackets? 

Answer

For the design of steel surfaces, please use the add-on module RF-STEEL Surfaces. If you also want to consider local buckling, the add-on modules RF-STABILITY (for buckling shape and buckling loads) and RF-IMP (for determining the imperfection shape, based on the buckling shape) are also recommended.
