Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Design with Dlubal Software

Structural Analysis & Design of Concrete

27. June 2016

Dlubal structural engineering software performs structural analysis and design of reinforced concrete as well as prestressed concrete structures according to Eurocode 2.

For prestressed concrete design, there are many National Annexes to EC 2 available, for example the NA of Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and many other countries.

In addition to Eurocode, there are the standards of the USA, Switzerland and China available in RFEM/RSTAB, that you can apply for analysis of reinforced concrete parts, such as ceilings, walls, beams, columns, and other structural components.

Furthermore, structural analysis programs by Dlubal Software allow you to design foundation components such as single foundations, floor slabs, and white troughs (waterproof concrete). Thus, continuous planning of reinforced concrete structures is possible.

Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete in RFEM

In order to represent the structural behavior of reinforced concrete structures close to reality, RFEM provides the possibility of nonlinear analysis. The RF‑CONCRETE NL add‑on module performs physically and geometrically nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete surfaces and beam structures. The RF‑CONCRETE Deflect add‑on module allows for analytical deformation analysis of plate structures made of reinforced concrete.

Result windows show deformation, concrete and steel stress, crack width, crack depth, and crack spacing as results of nonlinear analysis. In addition, you can save the nonlinear stiffness in RFEM and apply it to further structural designs in RFEM.
