Garage Pétry à ROOST
In Roost, Luxembourg, a new building complex is built relating to cars. There will be up to six car dealerships, a car park, and a paint shop built on the site. The construction project was divided into two planning phases. The first phase includes three multi-storey car dealerships. They have the same supporting structure.

Dimensions of a car dealership
Schatz Engineering, a customer of Dlubal Software, was responsible for the structural and design engineering of the building complex. RSTAB has been used for structural design, and Tekla Structures for design engineering.
The three structurally identical car dealerships have the external dimensions L x W x H of about 37 m x 28 m x 13 m.
The supporting structure consists of precast columns with molded foundations. Precast concrete supports are placed on column corbels. Walls were designed as concrete hollow walls. Floors and ceilings are made of precast concrete slabs. The roof structure and the facade substructure were designed as a steel structure.
BIM Planning with RSTAB and Tekla Structures
The project planning has been carried out in Tekla Structures. The Tekla model was transferred to RSTAB using the direct interface. After performing the structural analysis, beam dimensions have been updated in the Tekla model.
Tekla Structures was also used to create formwork and reinforcement drawings for the precast concrete elements, garage design, schemes and NC data for the steel structure, among other things.

The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- How can I perform the design of the tension resistance of a smooth column in a smooth bucket column base, i.e. the design against pulling out of the column?
- How can I create a twisted beam in RFEM?
- I often edit the reinforcement provided by the program. Adjusting the reinforcement by using coordinates takes much effort and time if having several beams in the model. Is there any way to speed up the reinforcement editing?
- In the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on module, I obtain an extremely high design ratio for a member in the case of "Biaxial bending, shear and axial force." Although the axial force is relatively high, the design ratio seems to be unrealistic. What is the reason?
- For which programs is the STEEL Warping Torsion add-on module available?
- How do you define the descriptions of various reinforcement results,such as the required reinforcement?
- How are the creep and shrinkage for columns considered in RF‑CONCRETE Members?
- Why do I get such a small amount of reinforcement for the upstand beam? The amount of reinforcement for the downstand beams is significantly larger.
- Which filter settings should be selected in the material library for concrete in order to perform design in RF‑CONCRETE according to the Swedish National Annex? In RFEM, there is no Swedish standard group available for the selection.
- I have just noticed that the STEEL EC3 add-on module also calculates with γM0 = 1.0 when designing a tension member, although it should actually be γM2 = 1.25. How can I perform the design correctly?
