RFEM 5 | FEA Structural Analysis Software

Structural Analysis & Engineering Software

The FEA program RFEM allows for quick and easy modeling, structural and dynamic calculation, as well as design of models with member, plate, wall, folded plate, shell, and solid elements.

Due to the modular software concept, you can connect the basic program RFEM with the corresponding add‑ons in order to meet your individual requirements.

First Steps with RFEM

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the basic program RFEM.

The structural analysis program RFEM provides structural engineers with a 3D FEA program that meets all requirements in modern civil engineering. Efficient data input and intuitive handling facilitate the modeling of simple and complex structures.

The structural analysis software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. The basic program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

RFEM calculates deformations, internal forces, stresses, support forces, and soil contact stresses. Add-on modules facilitate data input by automatically creating structures and connections, or can be used to carry out further analyzes and designs according to various standards.

The modular software concept allows you to compile a program package tailored to your individual needs. It is possible to upgrade the program at any time.

The main program RFEM is also available as a lower-priced 2D version.

Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Through numerous interfaces, RFEM realizes the perfect interaction between CAD and structural analysis in Building Information Modeling (BIM). For example, RFEM allows bidirectional data exchange with the programs Tekla Structures, Autodesk Revit, and Bentley ISM.


Enjoying Structural Analyses

“Great praise again, I really enjoy my structural analyses with RFEM. Your advertising slogan is actually true.”

Advantages of Spatial FEA Model

"The spatial FEA model offered very good options to analyze and design the load-bearing behavior of a special complex structure in a verifiable way. Due to the extremely high safety requirements concerning the most famous landmark of Germany, the Brandenburg Gate, it was necessary to mount the support structure in two stages. The specific mounting situations could be modeled very well in RFEM."
