Why Dlubal Software?
Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
It's getting windy here! Send your structures to the digital wind tunnel using the stand-alone program RWIND 2. It simulates wind flows around structures, regardless of whether they are simple or complex.
You can easily import the generated wind loads acting on these objects into RFEM or RSTAB and use them for your further calculations.
Transfer of Support Forces from Other Model
This function provides you with the option to adopt reaction forces from other models as nodal and line loads.
The option not only transfers the reaction load as an action, but digitally couples the support load of the original model with the load size of the target object. The subsequent changes in the original model are automatically adopted in the target model.
This technology supports the concept of positional statics and allows you to digitally connect the individual positions of the same Dlubal Center project.
Considering Crack Factor kcr for Surfaces
Do you work with timber? We have a new feature for you! For timber surfaces with the "Constant" thickness type, the crack factor kcr and thus the negative influence of cracks on the shear capacity is taken into account.
Manufacturer's Library for Cross-Laminated Timber
Are you often busy manually defining the cross-laminated timber structures? Then we have good news for you! We have implemented a library from which you can import the manufacturer's superstructures. In addition to the layer thicknesses and materials, there is also the information about stiffness reductions and the narrow side bonding. More superstructures will be added in the library soon, so you can sit back and relax.
Plastic Material Model for Weld Design
Here, the weld design becomes child's play. Using the specially developed material model "Orthotropic | Plastic | Weld (Surfaces)", you can calculate all stress components plastically. The stress τperpendicular is also considered plastically.
Using this material model you can design welds closer to reality and more efficiently.
Canadian Steel Sections from the CISC Handbook (12th Edition)
The new steel sections according to the latest CISC Handbook (12th edition) are available in RFEM 6. The sections are listed in the Standardized library. In the filter, select “Canada” for the region and “CISC 12” for the standard. Alternatively, the section name can be directly entered in the search box located at the bottom of the dialog box.
Connecting Plate Component
Using the Connecting Plate component, you can automatically create a new gusset plate in the Steel Joints add-on. This saves you separate components, and the other elements, such as a cap plate and a slide plate, are thus automatically taken into account with their dimensions.
Shifted Display of Nodal Loads
Would you like to display nodal loads or load components that act on one point next to each other? Then use the "Shifted Display" option. This allows you to define offsets in the x, y, and z directions, as well as the size and spacing.
Shear Resistance of Bolts
To determine the shear resistance of bolts, you can use the Steel Joints add-on to specify whether there is a shaft or a thread in the shear plane.
Material of Weld
If a weld seam connects two plates with different materials, it is possible to select from a combo box in the Steel Joints add-on which one of both materials should be used for the weld seam.
Design of Orthotropic Timber Surfaces and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
Do you work with timber a lot? In the Timber Design add-on for RFEM, you can design members as well as surfaces according to the Eurocode, such as cross-laminated timber, glued-laminated timber, softwood, engineered wood, and so on.

"The software is so powerful and capable. People will really value this when they are properly introduced to it."
"I have been using Dlubal for over a year now and am constantly impressed by the range of its capabilities/flexibilities that Dlubal offers, in particular its ability to cope with the unusual design challenges and requirements typical of what I do in my daily job."
