Structural Analysis Engineering Software

Structural Design and FEM Analysis

Dlubal Software develops solutions for structural calculations of all kinds. The finite element program RFEM and the frame & truss analysis program RSTAB are predestined for the structural analysis of planar and spatial structures made of reinforced concrete, masonry, steel, aluminum, timber, and other materials.

As a universal structural engineering software, RFEM allows you to model, analyze, and design all types of structures. The wind simulation program RWIND allows you to smoothly transfer wind loads from structures of any shape to RFEM or RSTAB. You already see – Dlubal Software knows no boundaries and gives you new opportunities.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The structural analysis software RFEM is the basis of a program family consisting of modular software. As the main program, RFEM can be used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. Does your project consist of different elements? The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as to model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

Do you need member analysis models that you can use to perform reliable calculations? Then the structural frame & truss analysis software RSTAB 9 is right for you. RSTAB has a similar range of functions as the FEA program RFEM, but is specially designed for member analysis models. This makes it even easier to use. It is not for nothing that for many years, the RSTAB series has been the best choice for structural engineers when it comes to pure member structural models.

Wind Simulation and Wind Load Generation

The RWIND 2 stand-alone program is recommended for complex structures. Utilize this program to simulate wind flow (digital wind tunnel) around buildings or any other objects and generating wind loads, that is the forces acting on these objects based on CFD.

Import the generated wind loads acting on these objects to the structural analysis and design software RFEM or RSTAB.

Add-ons and Add-on Modules for RFEM and RSTAB

Do you need more than the Dlubal main programs? We have developed a corresponding module for each type of material so you can individually compile your structural analysis program using the components you really need. The design of various materials, such as reinforced and prestressed concrete, steel, aluminum, timber, and glass is available for you in a wide range of powerful add-ons and add‑modules.

Among other things, these extensions to the Dlubal basic programs allow you to perform nonlinear calculations, stability and dynamic analyses, joint design checks, and form‑finding processes for cable and membrane structures.

Section Properties of Any Cross-Section

Are you looking for a program to determine cross-section properties, analyze stresses, and perform plastic design of any cross-section? Then your search over here. The Dlubal product family also includes the RSECTION 1 program that easily covers these requirements.

Moreover, we offer the Effective Sections extension of RSECTION. It determines the effective cross-sections according to EN 1993‑1‑5 and EN 1993‑1‑3. These cross-sections and the calculated cross-section properties can be exported to RFEM or RSTAB. In the end, you can save all of your project data in one program.

Stand-Alone Programs

To use the stand-alone programs by Dlubal Software, you do not need to install the main programs RFEM or RSTAB. The CRANEWAY program calculates crane runway girders according to EC 3. On the other hand, PLATE‑BUCKLING performs buckling analysis for unstiffened and stiffened rectangular plates according to EC 3. The RX‑TIMBER programs design glued-laminated timber trusses, continuous beams, columns, purlins, frames, bracing, and roofs of timber structures.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

The Dlubal structural analysis software is absolutely flexible. It allows you to integrate the programs seamlessly into your Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. Due to a large number of interfaces, you can exchange data from your digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

Use the Webservice (a programmable interface) to read and write the required data from or to RFEM and RSTAB.
