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.
Editable GUI for Individual Adjustment
A model is created in the graphical user interface characteristic for CAD programs, using tables, or in combination of both ways. Extensive shortcut menus facilitate data input. Since the structural model is photorealistically visualised, you can directly control the data entered.
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 so the structure and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.
Multilingual Program Operation
It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English (American or British), German, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Czech.
The user-interface design of RSTAB is modifiable: There are nine different user‑interface styles available, for example Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black.
Menus and toolbars are freely configurable, which allows you to create a user‑defined arrangement of frequently used functions. Tables, navigators, and toolbars can also be arranged in any order and docked as well. Default settings of the program can be restored with a mouse click.
In addition, the configuration manager provides the option of creating user‑defined display properties and toolbars, which can be saved as a separate configuration.
The photorealistic visualization of a model in 3D rendering provides direct control of input data. Display colors can be freely adjusted and saved separately for the screen and printout.
Displaying and Hiding Objects
It is possible to specifically display or hide various objects such as nodes, members, supports, and others. You can dimension the model by using lines, archs, inclinations, or height elevations. Freely created guidelines, sections, and comments facilitate the input and evaluation. You can also display or hide guide objects individually.
Global Settings of Units
A global dialog box manages the units of input data, loads, and results in RSTAB as well as in all add‑on modules. It is possible to save the settings and import it again. In this way, you can use different sections in steel and reinforced concrete structures, for example.
