Design Software for Structural Timber Connections

Design of Timber Connections

In the structural analysis software RFEM and RSTAB, there are powerful add-on modules for the design of timber connections.

They allow the design of connections where timber members are connected indirectly with steel plates or directly with slant screws.

FEM Analysis and Design of Structures

The structural analysis program RFEM 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.

Analysis and Design of Beam Structures

The structural beam analysis program RSTAB determines internal forces, deformations and support reactions. For designs, there are various add-on modules considering the material and standard-specific circumstances. Due to the modular software system, it is possible to use the program package that perfectly meets your individual needs.

Design of Joints

Here you can find numerous add-on modules for the design of joints in steel and timber structures.

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.

    Ester Tower in Jerusalem, Israel

    © Timber Design s.r.o.

    A wooden lookout tower called Ester, designed by the renowned Czech architect Martin Rajniš, was inaugurated in Jerusalem in mid-November 2017. The tower in the shape of a blooming cactus is located in the gardens of the former hospital, built in 1887, not far from the walls of the Old City, offering visitors a spectacular view over Jerusalem.
