Why Dlubal Software?
Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand -alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flows around simple or complex structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
The individually defined printout reports in an RFEM or RSTAB model can be displayed in different ways.
The interface to Autodesk Revit is installed automatically during the installation of RFEM or RSTAB. Subsequent installation of the plug‑in is possible through the execution of Revit-Installer.exe.
In times of BIM, data exchange between the various disciplines of construction is increasingly important. Since each software has its own specifications with regard to the description of cross-sections and materials, RFEM and RSTAB offer a conversion table (mapping file).
In RFEM and RSTAB, you can export the calculation results to an Excel document.
Once you have determined the final tendon geometry in RF‑TENDON, exporting the model to a CAD program can be useful. For this purpose, the module includes the option to export the file in the .dxf file format. You can select the export function by right-clicking the workspace. After selecting the DXF format and the storage location, additional settings can be made.
In RF-/STEEL EC3, you can optimize a cross‑section automatically within the design. To do this, select the corresponding cross‑section in Table 1.3 or define variable parameters for a welded cross‑section.
DXF layers of ground plans cannot be used directly in FEA programs because only the outer contours of the elements (walls, ceilings, etc.) are available in the drawing. However, the structural analysis program requires system axes.
If you have imported a DXF file in RFEM or you need to add a membrane to an existing member structure, you can use the function "Tools" → "Generate Model - Surfaces" → "Surfaces from Cells", and thus quickly create planar surfaces.
The ISM file (ISM = Integrated Structural Modeling) in RFEM and RSTAB provides an interesting option for exchanging data. If you export a model to this data format, you can view and analyze it with the free ISM viewer from Bentley.
"A good tool is half the job done": This proverb could be applied equally to the software industry. The more a program is task-tailored, the more efficiently the tasks can be solved. The variety and complexity of today's problems, especially in structural engineering, require specifically tailored solutions. Creating your own programs by means of textual programming requires in-depth knowledge and a great ability to abstract. Understandably, only very few engineering offices face this challenge. For this reason, there are additional software solutions providing the user with a visual development environment.
