The finite element analysis program RFEM is a powerful software for quick and easy modeling, structural analysis and design of 2D and 3D models consisting of member, plate, wall, folded plate, shell, solid, and contact elements.
Due to the modular software concept, you can connect the main program RFEM with the corresponding add‑on modules in order to meet your individual requirements.
Project Navigator - Views allows you to easily generate various views in a few simple steps. Moreover, you can save and open them again at any time.
It is possible to assign different colours to various objects of a structure in order to make the rendering display of the structure more clearly arranged.
The following categories are available: Materials, Cross‑Sections, Member Types, Member Hinges, Surface Types - Geometry, Surface Types - Stiffness, Surface Thickness, Solid Types, Surface Sides, and User‑Defined Visibilities.
The ‘Edit Load Cases and Combinations’ dialog box provides the option of the automatic generation of load and result combinations after selecting the corresponding combination expressions. In this clearly arranged dialog box, it is also possible to copy, add, or renumber load cases, for example.
Furthermore, you can manage the load cases and combinations in Tables 2.1 – 2.6.
There is a mass print function for the model data, loads, and results. It is possible to create graphics from different defined directions. For example, you can print all internal forces in an isometric view with a single mouse click.
