Stability Analyses in RFEM and RSTAB

8 June 2018

In RFEM and RSTAB, weak points in static models can be easily and quickly recognized using stability analyses. In the add-on modules RF-STABILITY (for RFEM) and RSBUCK (for RSTAB), effective lengths and buckling loads are determined for every member, and the critical load factor is displayed for the entire structure. The critical load factor reflects the stability risks of a structure. The buckling modes can also be visualized and even animated for a better analysis.
