Plastic Hinges According to FEMA 356
What are plastic hinges? Very simple – plastic hinges according to FEMA 356 help you to create pushover curves. These are nonlinear hinges with preset yield properties and acceptance criteria for steel members (Chapter 5 of FEMA 356).

Features of the Modal Analysis Add-on for RFEM 6
The dynamic analysis in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9 is divided into several add-ons. This article will show you some of the main features of the Modal Analysis Add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9.
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
The structural frame & truss analysis and design program RSTAB 9 contains a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM, paying special attention to frames and trusses. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis of beam structures consisting of steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and other materials.
