Towers and Masts Add-on Modules
For Design of Towers and Masts
RFEM and RSTAB allows for continuous planning of lattice towers. The corresponding add‑on modules provide a wide range of options, from automatic generation of structures and loading to determination of effective lengths and design according to Eurocode.
It is also possible to model and analyze individual tower and mast structures.
The RF-/TOWER Structure add-on module provides an innovative tool which facilitates the generation of geometrically complex 3D tower structures. It is possible to create lattice towers and radio masts using parameters.
In addition, the module can adjust the models created in RFEM/RSTAB.
The RF-/TOWER Equipment add‑on module can create tower equipment such as transmitting antennas, platforms, ladders, and cable lines.
The add-on module includes extensive libraries of inside and outside platforms, tubular extensions, antenna brackets, and antennas.
The RF-/TOWER Loading add‑on module creates design‑relevant actions for lattice towers such as parameterized wind loads, ice loads, and variable loads.
The generation considers also the objects created in RF‑/TOWER Structure and RF‑/TOWER Equipment.
The RF-/TOWER Effective Lengths add‑on module determines the effective lengths of members used in lattice towers with square, rectangular or triangular floor plans.
After the effective lengths are determined, they can be exported to the RF‑/TOWER Design add-on module for further designs.
The RF-/TOWER Design add‑on module designs lattice towers according to the standards EN 1993‑1‑1, EN 1993‑3‑1, and EN 50341.
The relevant input data of the add‑on modules RF‑/TOWER Structure, RF‑/TOWER Equipment, RF‑/TOWER Loading, and RF‑/TOWER Effective Lengths are considered in the design.
The RF-/JOINTS Steel - Tower add‑on module designs pinned joints with bolt connections for members used in lattice towers in accordance with the standard:
- EN 1993‑1‑8
