  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I would like to calculate and design "flying structures". What do I need for this?

Answer

As a basis for the analysis of temporary structures, both RFEM and RSTAB can be used. For both programs, standards are available according to which steel, aluminum, and lightweight structures can be calculated and designed. If you want to design membrane and cable structures, RFEM is required.

Main Programs RFEM or RSTAB

The main programs RFEM or RSTAB are used to define structures, materials, and actions.

In order to also analyze membrane and cable structures, RFEM is required. When it comes to pure beam structures, it is sufficient to purchase RSTAB. In any case, RFEM is more versatile; it can be equipped and extended with the corresponding add-on modules for all materials and structural models.

Available Standards
  • RF-FORM-FINDING/RF-CUTTING-PATTERN (for RFEM only)
    Determination of a shape and a cutting pattern for cutting membranes
  • RWIND Simulation
    Complex analysis of any structures in the digital wind tunnel with the transfer of load cases to RFEM or RSTAB for further processing
Dynamic Analysis
If it is necessary to perform seismic analysis or vibration designs of a building, the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on modules provide special tools for determining natural frequencies and mode shapes, analysis of forced vibrations, generation of equivalent loads, and nonlinear time history analysis.
