New RFEM/RSTAB Program Features 2018
Live Demonstrations at BAU 2019
Product development in 2018 included numerous new developments in the Dlubal programs RFEM and RSTAB. You’ll find a small selection from this list below.
At BAU 2019, we will present to you our latest features and add-on modules including live demonstrations. Find us at booth 228 in Hall C5.
New Features 2018
In 2018, the following new features were implemented in RFEM/RSTAB, the add-on modules, and stand-alone programs:
- Export of the reinforcement concept from RF-/CONCRETE Members as well as RF-/CONCRETE Surfaces to Revit
- Imposed line deformation in RFEM (e.g. to simulate foundation settlements)
- Graphical and tabular display of forces and deformations of hinges and releases in RFEM
- Solid load "Gas" (for RF-FORM-FINDING)
- Nonlinear material models for membranes in RFEM ("Isotropic nonlinear elastic 2D/3D" and "Isotropic plastic 2D/3D")
- Adaptiv mesh refinement in RFEM
- Automatic determination of number of load increments in RFEM to solve nonlinear tasks efficiently
- Calculation of stiffened buckling panels according to EN 1993-1-5, 4.5 in SHAPE-THIN
- Member hinge nonlinearity "Scaffolding Diagram" in RFEM
- Torsional design in RF-LAMINATE
- Printing option for visualized mode shape in RF-STEEL EC3
- Member type "Dashpot" (e.g. for time history analyses in RF-/DYNAM Pro)
- Link to TeamViewer in the Help menu
- Conversion of Lehr's damping to Rayleigh damping in RF-/DYNAM Pro
New Add-on Module RF-/JOINTS Steel - Rigid
With the RF-/JOINTS Steel - Rigid add-on module, it is possible to configurate and design moment resisting joints of rolled and welded I-beams. The design is carried out according to EN 1993-1-8:2010 (including National Annexes). Three different types are available:
- rigid beam to column joint with end plate
- rigid end plate connection as beam joint
- rigid splice plate connection
