Concrete Structural Analysis & Design Software

3D Finite Element Analysis and Design

Structural engineering FEA software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, members (beams), solids and contact elements.

Analysis & Design of Frame/Beam/Truss Structures

Structural frame analysis and design software RSTAB contains a similar range of functions as RFEM, with special attention to frame and beam structures. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural analysis of reinforced concrete structures.

Design of Reinforced Concrete Members and Surfaces

CONCRETE (for RSTAB) performs the necessary designs of members made of reinforced concrete.
RF-CONCRETE (for RFEM) designs surfaces in addition.

Design of Reinforced Concrete Columns

RF-/CONCRETE Columns performs the ultimate limit state design of rectangular and circular compression elements (beams) according to the model column method (method based on nominal curvature).

Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures

RF-CONCRETE NL performs physical (material) and geometrical nonlinear analysis of beam and plate structures consisting of reinforced concrete.
RF‑CONCRETE Deflect allows for analytical deformation analysis of plate structures made of reinforced concrete.

Punching Shear Design

RF-PUNCH Pro performs the design of punching shear resistance for singularly or linearly supported surfaces.

Reinforced Concrete Design According To Various Standards

The following module extensions perform reinforced concrete design according to various standards.

Reinforced Concrete Design of Foundations

RF-/FOUNDATION Pro performs the reinforced concrete design of single, bucket and block foundations for all support forces.

Prestressed Concrete Design

RF‑TENDON and RF‑TENDON Design perform the design of prestressed concrete members with pre‑tensioned and post‑tensioned concrete.

    Downstand Beams, Ribs, T-Beams: Modeling and Determination of Internal Forces

    Downstand beams or T-beams are often used in reinforced concrete structures. In contrast to the previous representation and calculation options where, for example, a downstand beam was considered as a fixed support and the determined support reaction was applied to a separate member structure using a T-beam section, the ultimate structural FEA software like RFEM allow you to consider the structure as a whole and thus achieve a more precise analysis.

  2. 1 - Absorbed Shear Force on Wall End and Wall Corner

    Determination of Punching Load on Wall Ends and Wall Corners in RF-PUNCH Pro

    The RF-PUNCH Pro add‑on module allows you to perform punching shear design of slabs and foundation plates (floor slabs) on wall ends and wall corners.
