Stand-Alone Programs - Timber Structures
RX‑TIMBER Glued‑Laminated Beam performs design of wide‑span glulam beams in eight different beam types (parallel, monopitch roof, duopitch roof beam, and others).
It is possible to consider typical transversal tension reinforcements such as bonded steel bars.
The RX‑TIMBER Continuous Beam analyzes single‑span and continuous beams as well as hinged girder systems with or without cantilever.
The RX‑TIMBER Column program designs hinged columns (optionally with elastic head or footing restraint) and brackets (optionally with elastic footing restraint). There are various round and rectangular cross‑sections available.
The stand‑alone program RX‑TIMBER Purlin designs coupled purlins or continuous beams at the ultimate and the serviceability limit state as well as fire resistance according to Eurocode 5.
RX‑TIMBER Frame performs all required designs according to EC 5 for three‑hinged frames with the following geometry types:
- Symmetrical / asymmetrical
- Column sloping inside/outside
- Intermediate piece with/without
The RX‑TIMBER Brace stand‑alone program performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state design as well as fire resistance design of truss bracing for stiffening according to Eurocode 5.
RX‑TIMBER Roof performs all required designs according to EC 5 for the following roof types:
- Flat roof
- Monopitch roof
- Duopitch roof (symmetrical / asymmetrical)

The cross-section resistance design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension/compression as well as the strength in shear due to shear force.
The design of structural components at risk of buckling or lateral-torsional buckling is performed according to the Equivalent Member Method and considers the systematic axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is compared to the maximal allowable deflection.
Separate design cases allow for a flexible and stability analysis of members, sets of members, and loads.
Design-relevant parameters such as the stability analysis type, member slendernesses, and limit deflections can be freely adjusted.
- I have a question about the results of the serviceability limit state design: How is the increment of the dead load by the factor 1.8 and the imposed load by 1.48 explained in the result combinations for the SLS design?
- Which Dlubal Software programs can I use to calculate and design timber structures?
- Windows Defender does not allow me to install RX‑TIMBER. Is it possible to get around this?
- How do I create a user-defined material in the RX‑TIMBER program?
- How can I load the authorization file (AUTHOR.INI) in the RX‑TIMBER module?
- Can I also apply user-defined loads in RX-TIMBER?
- How can I change the language in the RX‑TIMBER add-on module?
- Is it possible to open the RX‑TIMBER files in RFEM and RSTAB?
- The dimensioning in the graphical display in the RX‑TIMBER printout report is very confusing, depending on a structure. Is is possible to optimize it?
- Where is the consequences class defined in RX‑TIMBER?
