Structural Frame Analysis Program RSTAB

The Best Structural Modeling Program

“We are dealing with Structural and Seismic Engineering since 1998. Dlubal Software is, in our experience, the best structural modeling program on the market. We recommend it to all those who need to deal with special and daily cases.”

Load Generation

As a standard feature, RSTAB includes helpful tools for generating wind, snow, and ice loads, etc., as well as for converting surface loads into member loads.

  1. Figure 01 - Generating Snow Loads According to the Eurocode

    Snow Load Generator

    Snow loads can be generated as member loads on flat/monopitch roofs and duopitch roofs.

    Additional snow loads such as drifted snow loads, snow overhangs, and snow guards can be taken into account as well.

    The following standards are available:

    • European Union 1991-1-3 (including National Annexes)
    • Germany DIN 1055-5
    • Spain CTE DB-SE-AE
    • United States of America ASCE/SEI 7-16

  2. Figure 01 - Wind Load on Vertical Walls with Roof

    Wind Load Generator

    Wind loads can be automatically generated as member loads on the following structural components (optional with internal pressure für open buildings):

    • Vertical walls
    • Flat roofs
    • Monopitch roofs
    • Duopitch/Troughed roofs
    • Vertical walls with roof

    The following standards are available:

    • European Union 1991-1-4 (including National Annexes)
    • Germany DIN 1055-4
    • Spain CTE DB-SE-AE
    • United States of America ASCE/SEI 7-16

  3. Figure 01 - Convert Area Loads to Member Loads via Cells

    Generating Member Loads from Area Loads

    Area loads can be automatically converted into member loads. There are 2 options available for this:

    • Member loads from area loads via plane
    • Member loads from area loads via cells

    Depending on the selected option, you either have to define a plane via corner nodes or select cells in the graphic. The area load can either be applied to the entire surface or only the effective or projected surface of the members.

  4. Figure 01 - Convert Free Line Load to Member Loads

    Generating Member Loads from Free Line Loads

    With this generator, you can define free line loads e.g. for girder grillages (from conveyor belts, for example) and proportionally allocate them to members.

  5. Figure 01 - Convert Coating Load to Member Loads

    Generating Member Loads from Coating

    Coating loads can be generated as member loads from ice loads, claddings, etc.

    For that, you only have to specify the thickness and specific weight of the coating.

  6. Figure 01 - Generate Loads from Motion

    Generating Loads from Accelerated Movements

    This generator creates loads as a result of an acceleration or rotation (from tower cranes, for example), which acts on specific objects of the model.

    The mass is determined from the self-weight.

Easy Modeling of Structures

“I really enjoy working with Dlubal Software programs. The structure generation and modification can proceed smoothly:

  • Manageability of functions in the menu and movability in space
  • Data transparency: checks, options to modify and transfer data

I am happy that I switched over to Dlubal Software!”
