Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis Software
Structural engineering FEA software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.
Structural frame analysis and design software RSTAB contains a similar range of functions as RFEM, with special attention to frame and beam structures. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural analyses.
RF-/DYNAM Pro - Natural Vibrations performs the analysis of natural frequencies and mode shapes.
RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations performs the analysis of forced vibrations including the multi-modal response spectrum method and time history analysis.
RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History is an extension of the add‑on modules RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Natural Vibrations and RF‑DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations (linear time history analysis).
The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal can be seamlessly integrated into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. A variety of interfaces allows you to exchange data from digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.
The FC Campus ("Cube A" and "Cube B"), located directly on the A5 exit Karlsruhe-Nord, consists of two adjacent structural cubes at a slight offset which leave a lasting impression due to their unique facade design.
The removable grandstands are surrounded on three sides by precast seating risers in the north endzone of the Los Angeles Football club soccer stadium. The grandstands are a free-standing system. The system is comprised of aluminum trusses which are demountable from aluminum towers.
The Palazzo Meridia in Nice is currently the tallest CLT office building in France. The Dlubal customer CBS-Lifteam was responsible for the planning, supply and installation of the timber structure.
This slender timber pedestrian bridge was constructed over the Bow River in Banff. At 13 ft wide and 38 ft long, the bridge is complete with an 263 ft clear span which is perhaps the longest of its kind for a timber bridge.
SWE-Eurodrive GmbH & Co. KG, a German family-owned company operating in the area of drive technology, expands its plant until 2019 at Graben-Neudorf. The existing plant with a size of 1,184,030 ft² will almost be doubled...
One of the world's highest timber structures is a look‑out tower on the Pyramidenkogel, a mountain in Carinthia, Austria.
The spiral-shaped tower with a height of 100 m provides a breathtaking view over the Alps-Adriatic region.
In December 2013, a hotel with extraordinary architecture was opened in Davos, Switzerland. The building has the shape of a “Golden Egg” and is situated on a mountainside.
The hotel is elliptic in shape with all corners rounded out constructed with reinforced concrete.
A timber apartment complex with appealing architecture has been built in the Italian town of Brescia. Four housing complexes include a total of 72 housing units.
For the Lombard Institute for Residential Buildings (ALER), this has been the first project carried out in wood.
An extraordinary structure was built in Chile: "Temple of Light," one of eight Bahá'í temples in the world.
The shape of the temple resembles a nine‑petalled blossom of a lotus flower. The building has a diameter of about 34 m and a height of 30 m.

With the RF-DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module, it is possible to generate automatically load distribution in accordance with a mode shape and export it as load case to RFEM.
- What method is applied in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module?
- How can I display the results of the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on module in the printout report?
- What should be considered when using a failure of columns under tension in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro – Equivalent Loads add-on module?
- After the calculation in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module, the size of my file has increased significantly. The performance has worsened enormously. What could be the reason for this?
- I would like to calculate and design "temporary structures." What do I need for this?
- Which programs can I use to calculate and design power plants?
- I noticed deviations from the map of DIN EN 1998‑1 or DIN 4149 in the online service "<a href="https://www.dlubal.com/en/solutions/online-services/snow-load-wind-speed-and-seismic-load-maps" target="_blank">Geo-Zone Tool: Snow, Wind, and Seismic Zone Maps</a>." Can you tell me which map is current and thus governing?
- How do you distinguish between the response spectra with equivalent loads and the response spectra without equivalent loads in RFEM and RSTAB?
- I would like to design an aluminum or lightweight structure. Is it possible to use RFEM or RSTAB for this?
- Why do I only obtain the seismic loads calculated in one direction in the case of design with RF‑/DYNAM Pro?
