Pushover Analysis Software

3D Finite Element Analysis and Design

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.

Pushover Analysis

In RFEM, it is possible to determine pushover curves (also called capacity curves) and export them to Excel.

This FAQ describes the procedure:

Add-on Modules for Dynamic and Seismic Analysis

The RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on modules allow for determination of natural vibrations, equivalent seismic loads, and so on.

    Determination of Pushover Curves

    Pushover analysis is a nonlinear structural calculation for seismic analysis of structures. The load pattern is inferred from dynamic calculation of equivalent loads. These loads are incrementally increased until the global failure of the structure occurs. The nonlinear behaviour of a building is usually represented by using plastic hinges.
