Design Software for Structural Timber Connections

Design of Timber Connections

RFEM and RSTAB provide powerful add-on modules for the design of timber connections.

You can design, for example, connections where timber members are connected indirectly with steel plates or directly with slant screws.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The RFEM structural analysis program is the basis of a modular software system. The main program 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 & Truss Analysis Software

The structural frame analysis software RSTAB has a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM. Due to the special attention to beam, frame, and truss structures, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis and design of pure structural member models.

Connection Design

Numerous add-on modules provide design options for steel and timber connections.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal Software can be integrated seamlessly into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. The large number of interfaces ensures the data exchange of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

The web service (programmable interface) can be used to read or write data from/to RFEM and RSTAB.

Support and Learning

Customer service is a fundamental pillar of the Dlubal Software company philosophy. We provide any necessary support you need to complete your daily work.

    Ester Tower in Jerusalem, Israel

    © Timber Design s.r.o.

    A wooden lookout tower called Ester, designed by renowned Czech architect Martin Rajniš, was inaugurated in Jerusalem in mid-November 2017. This tower, designed in the shape of a cactus by renowned Czech architect Martin Rajniš, is located in the complex of a former hospital from 1887, not far from the old town walls ...
