Analysis software for soil-structure interaction

3D Finite Element Analysis and Design

The structural engineering FEA software RFEM represents the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM is used to define the model, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members.

The program also enablesyou to create combined structural models as well as to model solid and contact elements.

Consideration of Soil Models in RFEM

In RFEM, it is possible to consider different soil models, such as:

  • Subgrade reaction modulus method
  • Modified subgrade reaction modulus method
  • Modified two-parametric soil models (with foundation overlaps or additional springs)
  • Stiffness modulus method (RF-SOILIN)
  • 3D half-space analysis

In this regard, it is especially recommended to apply the stiffness modulus method using RF-SOILIN as the subgrade reaction modulus is determined interdependently with the load. In addition, different soil layers can be defined in different areas. Thus, the soil structure is represented in a realistic way.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

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.
