Recently Released Programs / Add-on Modules
New Add-on Modules
The RF-CUTTING-PATTERN add-on module calculates and organizes the cutting patterns for membrane structures.
The stand-alone cross‑section properties software SHAPE‑THIN 8 includes many new features as well as the graphical user interface adjusted to RFEM/RSTAB.
The RF-PUNCH Pro add‑on module performs the design of punching shear resistance for singularly or linearly supported surfaces.
RF-/STEEL Plasticity is an extension of the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add‑on module.
The module extension allows for plastic design of cross‑sections according to the Partial Internal Forces Method (PIFM) and Simplex Method in compliance with the second‑order analysis with 7 degrees of freedom including warping torsion (module extension RF‑/STEEL Warping Torsion required).
The RF-/ALUMINUM ADM add‑on module is applicable for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state designs of members according to the American standard ADM 2010.
RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion
RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion is an extension of the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add‑on module.
The program performs warping torsion analysis of members according to the second-order theory with 7 degrees of freedom and application of imperfections with regard to mode shapes.
RF-/JOINTS Steel - SIKLA
The RF-/JOINTS Steel - SIKLA add-on module performs joint design for fastening connections produced by the Sikla manufacturer (Brackets of type AK and TKO as well as end plates of type STA, WBD, and WD).
The RF‑PIPING module is an extension of RFEM user interface that allows modeling and loading pipelines conforming to standards.
The RF‑PIPING Design add‑on module performs piping design based on modeling in RF‑PIPING. The module compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3.
The RF‑/STEEL HK add‑on module designs steel members and sets of members for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state according to the Code of Practice for the Structural Use of Steel 2011 (Buildings Department - Hong Kong).
The RF-/TIMBER SANS add‑on module performs the ultimate and serviceability limit state designs and fire resistance designs according to the South African timber construction standards SANS 10163‑1:2003 and SANS 10163‑2:2001.
The RX-TIMBER Roof stand-alone program performs the ultimate and serviceability limit state design as well as fire resistance design of monopitch and duopitch roofs according to EN 1995‑1‑1.
The RF-/TIMBER NBR add‑on module performs the ultimate and serviceability limit state design for members according to the Brazilian timber construction standard NBR 7190‑1997.
The RF-FORM-FINDING add-on module finds the shapes of membrane and cable constructions. The shape is found by using the equilibrium between the surface stress (loading prestress) and the natural and geometrical boundary reactions.
RF-/JOINTS Steel - Pinned
With the RF-/JOINTS Steel - Pinned add‑on module, you can configure and design shear connections of I‑beams according to EC 3.
Four different types are available: Web cleat connection, fin plate connection, short end plate connection, and end plate connection with cleat.
