We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the RSTAB program.
RSTAB - Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software
Structural Engineering Analysis & Design Software
The 3D structural frame analysis program RSTAB is the ideal tool for the design of beam, frame, or truss structures consisting of steel, reinforced concrete, timber, aluminum, or other materials.
With RSTAB you can easily and quickly define a structural model and then calculate the internal forces, deformations, and support reactions. For further design, there are various add‑on modules available, considering structural data of specific materials and standards.
Useful Features and Tools for Effective Work
Automatic Generation of Combinations
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.
Now you can quickly create a line grid in Cartesian coordinate system, including optional notes and dimensions. In addition, it is possible to create spherical or cylindrical grids.
The grid can be rotated about one or more axes. Furthermore, you can save the line grid and reimport it later.
The Configuration Manager provides the option to specify user‑defined settings of display properties, program options, toolbars, and others, which can be saved as separate configurations. It is possible to save several configurations.
Project Navigator - Views
In the project navigator, there is a new tab - ‘Views’. In a simple way, you can generate various views here that are possible to save and open again at any time.
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.
