RFEM

Structural engineering FEA software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, members (beams), solids and contact elements.

RWIND Simulation – Online Manual

The RWIND Simulation program represents a separate application which is used externally to determine load cases and wind loads for RFEM or RSTAB models. The software uses a numerical CFD model to apply a fluid-mechanics simulation of the flow around objects in a wind tunnel.

RF-CONCRETE Surfaces – Online Manual

The RF-CONCRETE add-on module performs the required ultimate and serviceability limit state designs of reinforced concrete members and surfaces.

  • RF-CONCRETE Surfaces designs plates, walls, planar structures, and shells for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state.

RF-CONCRETE Members – Online Manual

The RF-CONCRETE add-on module performs the required ultimate and serviceability limit state designs of reinforced concrete members and surfaces.

  • RF-CONCRETE Members designs member elements of reinforced concrete structures.

RF-/STEEL EC3 – Online Manual

The RF-/STEEL EC3 add-on module can carry out all characteristic designs of the ultimate limit state and fire resistance as well as stress and deformation analyses for steel members according to Eurocode 3.

All important National Annexes are integrated.

RF-/LIMITS – Online Manual

The RF-/LIMITS add‑on module analyses the load bearing capacity of members, member ends, nodes, nodal supports, and surfaces by means of a defined ultimate load capacity.

The extendable library covers timber fasteners (SIGHA, Sherpa, WÜRTH, Simpson StrongTie, KNAPP) as well as steel fasteners (standardised joints in steel structures according to EC 3, M‑connect).

RF-MOVE Surfaces - Online Manual

The RF-MOVE Surfaces add‑on module for RFEM creates load cases on the basis of various positions of moving loads such as vehicles on bridges.

In addition, it is possible to create an enveloping result combination.

RF-/JOINTS - Online Manual

The add-on modules RF-JOINTS (for RFEM) and JOINTS (for RSTAB) combine the connection modules for member elements in a single user interface. Currently, the steel categories Column BasePinnedRigidTowerDSTV, and Sikla, as well as the timber categories Steel to Timber and Timber to Timber are implemented. This manual describes the special features of each individual add-on module.

BIM Interfaces - Online Manual

Dlubal Software supports the building information modeling by means of BIM (Building Information Modeling) using the BIM interfaces with Autodesk Revit and Tekla Structures. These interfaces are integrated into RFEM and RSTAB by default.
