Analysis and Design Software for Towers and Masts

Structural Engineering Software for Towers and Masts

The structural engineering FEA software RFEM and the structural frame analysis and design software RSTAB allow for continuous planning of lattice towers (e.g. 5G cell towers, transmission towers, look-out towers). The corresponding add-on modules provide a wide range of options, from automatic generation of structures and loading to the determination of effective lengths and design according to Eurocode.

It is also possible to model and analyze individual tower and mast structures (e.g. 5G phone masts).

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The RFEM structural analysis program 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.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

The structural frame analysis software RSTAB 9 has a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM. Due to the special attention to beam, frame, or truss structures, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models.

Generation of Lattice Tower Structures

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

Equipment of Lattice Communication Towers

The RF‑/TOWER Equipment add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 allows you to create tower equipment, such as antennas, platforms, ladders, or cable ducts.

Generation of Wind, Ice, and Traffic Loads for Lattice 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

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

Design of Lattice Tower Members According to Eurocode

The RF‑/TOWER Design add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 designs 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 designs 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 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.
