Structural Analysis & Design Software for Cable and Tensile Structures

Structural Analysis & Design of Cable and Tensile Structures

Tighten the ropes for your projects without worry. The Dlubal structural analysis programs RFEM and RSTAB enable you to design cable and tensile structures as well as their substructures. It does not matter whether the cables are prestressed or not.

The helpful Form-Finding add-on is at your side in RFEM. Use this add-on to find the shape of your cable structure before performing the calculation. Furthermore, you can combine the cables with member, surface, and solid elements.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The successful structural analysis program RFEM 6 by Dlubal Software is the basis of a modular program family that you can customize and combine according to your precise requirements. In the main program RFEM, you can define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. Furthermore, you can create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

Use the Dlubal spatial frame & truss analysis software RSTAB 9 if you need a special solution tailored to beam, frame, and truss structures. Due to the special attention to such structures, it is even easier to use than the FEA software RFEM. This program has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models for many years.

Wind Simulation and Wind Load Generation

Do your structures have to withstand every gust of wind? Then it is best to use the Dlubal stand-alone program RWIND 2. It is particularly recommended for complex model shapes. There are wind flows around all structures simulated in a digital wind tunnel.

You can easily import your generated wind loads acting on these objects into RFEM or RSTAB. Thus, you can complete your project there.

Form-Finding of Cable and Cable Net Structures

Leave the searching for a shape of cable and cable net structures to the Form-Finding add-on for RFEM 6. It quickly and precisely determines the shape by using the equilibrium between the cable forces and the existing boundary conditions. You can then use the prestressed model as a basis for your further calculations.

Add-ons and Add-on Modules for Structural Analysis of Cable and Cable Net Structures

Discover the helpful add-ons and add-on modules in the Steel Structures and Aluminum and Lightweight Structures industries for the structural analysis and design of cable and cable net structures or their substructures. Furthermore, there are also add-ons available for performing dynamic analyses.

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 allows you to exchange the data of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

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

Form-Finding for RFEM 6

Additional Analysis

The Form-Finding add-on finds the optimal shape of members subjected to axial forces and tension-loaded surface models. The shape is determined by the equilibrium between the member axial force or the membrane stress and the existing boundary conditions.
