Frame Analysis Software RSTAB 9 | Load Generation

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. Various add-ons that take into account the material and standard-specific requirements are available for the design.

Quick and Easy Generation of Loads

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."

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


Generation of Snow Loads

The Snow Load Wizard can be used to generate snow loads as member loads or surface loads.

Additional snow loads such as snow overhang and snow guard can be taken into account as well.

The following standards are available:

  • European Union 1991-1-3 (incl. National Annexes)
  • Switzerland SIA 260

Generation of Wind Loads

Wind loads can be automatically generated as member loads or area loads (RFEM) on the following structural components:

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

The following standards are available:

  • European Union 1991-1-4 (incl. National Annexes)
  • Switzerland SIA 260

Generating Member/Line Loads from Area Loads

Area loads can be automatically converted into member loads or line loads (RFEM).

For member loads from area loads, a plane must be defined via corner nodes or cells must be selected in the graphic.


Generating Member Loads from Free Line Loads

For member models such as grillages, you can define free line loads (e.g. from conveyor belts) and transfer them proportionally to members.
