Simulation of Masonry

RFEM allows for realistic assessment of structural behaviour of masonry.

For this, it is possible to define the nonlinear material model "Isotropic Masonry 2D" using the RF‑MAT NL add‑on module, which causes failure when exceeding limit stresses.

Cold-Formed Sections

Design general cold-formed sections with the SHAPE-THIN 9 stand-alone program and the RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections add-on module according to EN 1993-1-3 and EN 1993-1-5.
