Analysis & Design Software for Laminate, Sandwich, and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) Structures

Structural Engineering Software for Laminate & Sandwich Structures

In RFEM, it is possible to perform a stress and deflection analysis of laminate and sandwich surfaces. The calculation can consider shear coupling and is carried out according to the laminate theory.

It can be applied to the design of cross-laminated timber plates (CLT), fiber-reinforced plastics (for example FRP, GRP, GFRP, carbon material) and many others.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The structural analysis software RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular program family. 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.

Design of Laminate Surfaces

The RF‑LAMINATE add-on module for RFEM 5 performs stress and deflection analysis of laminate surfaces under consideration of shear coupling (cross-laminated timber elements, fiberglass, carbon, and so on).

Consideration of Construction Stages

The Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to consider the construction process of structures (member, surface, and solid structures). Neglecting the influence of the construction process can lead to errors in the calculation of overall models. With the Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on, you can analyze these influences and consider them up to the point of the structural design.

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.
