RFEM - Structural FEA Software for Professionals

Customizable GUI for Individual Adjustment

Powerful and Capable Software

"I think the software is so powerful and capable that people will really value its power when they get properly introduced to it."

A model is created in the graphical user interface characteristic for CAD programs, using tables, or in combination of both ways. Extensive context menus facilitate data input. Since the structural model is photorealistically visualised, you can directly check the data entered.

  1. Context menu in Navigator for entering a new surface

    Intuitive Graphical User-Interface

    A structure is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs or by using tables. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects. The user interface is operated intuitively. Therefore the model and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.

  2. Office 2007 Black Style

    Multilingual Program Operation

    It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English, German, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

    The user‑interface design of RFEM/RSTAB can be customized.

    There are nine different styles of graphical user interface to choose from, for example: Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black.

  3. Configuration Manager

    User-Defined Configurations

    Program configuration menus and toolbars can be freely customized. It's possible to setup an arrangement of frequently used functions and tools for quick access. Default settings of the program can be restored at the click of a button. Tables, navigators, and toolbars can also be freely moved and docked.

    The Configuration Manager provides the opportunity to define custom graphic display properties and toolbars, which can be saved and accessed later.

  4. Setting display properties

    Photorealistic Visualization

    The photorealistic visualization of a model in 3D rendering provides a direct check of the input data. Display colors can be freely adjusted and saved separately for the screen and printout.

  5. Display of Object Colors According to Cross-Sections

    Display Properties

    It is possible to assign different colors 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 and Effective Length Factors.

  6. Guidelines (axes) and dimensions

    Displaying and Hiding Objects

    It is possible to specifically display or hide various objects such as nodes, members, supports, and others. The model can be dimensioned by using lines, arcs, inclinations, or height elevations. Freely created guidelines, sections, and comments facilitate the input and evaluation. You can also display or hide guide objects individually.

  7. Adjusting units and decimal places

    Global Unit Settings

    A global dialog box manages the units of input data, loads, and results in RFEM/RSTAB as well as in all add‑on modules.

    It is possible to save the settings and import it again later. That way you can use different sections in steel and reinforced concrete structures, for example.
