Analysis and Design Software for Towers and Masts

Structural Engineering Software for Towers and Masts

If your project involves towers or masts, RFEM and RSTAB are your helpful companions for your planning. A wide range of add-on modules provides you with the individual customization options, such as an automatic generation of structures and loads, a determination of effective lengths, and design according to Eurocode.

It is possible to model and design lattice towers, such as 5G cell towers, transmission towers, or observation towers, as well as the individual tower and mast structures.

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.

Generation of Lattice Tower Structures

Use the RF‑/TOWER Structure add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 to easily create lattice, cell, and transmission towers by entering parameters.

Equipment of Lattice Communication Towers

Use the RF‑/TOWER Equipment add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 to quickly and efficiently create tower equipment, such as antennas, platforms, ladders, and cable ducts.

Generation of Wind, Ice, and Traffic Loads for Lattice Towers

Keep an eye on the environmental influences on your towers: The RF‑/TOWER Loading add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 generates design-relevant effects for lattice towers, such as wind, ice, and live loads.

Calculation of Effective Lengths for Lattice Tower Members

Use the RF‑/TOWER Effective Lengths add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB& 8 to determine the buckling lengths of members used in lattice towers with square, rectangular, or triangular floor plans.

Design of Lattice Tower Members According to Eurocode

Use the RF‑/TOWER Design add-on module for RFEM 5& / RSTAB 8 to design lattice towers according to EN 1993‑1‑1, EN 1993‑3‑1, and EN 50341.

Design of Nominally Pinned Joints of Lattice Tower Members According to Eurocode 3

The RF‑/JOINTS Steel - Tower add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 helps you to design pinned joints with bolt connections for members used in lattice towers in accordance with EN 1993‑1‑8.

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.
