Structural Analysis Software for Masonry Structures

Structural Analysis and Design | Masonry Structures

Calculate your masonry structures quickly and efficiently using the Dlubal structural analysis software RFEM. Regardless of whether you work with pure frame and truss structures, or structures with walls and shells, Dlubal Software provides you with the ideal solution.

Join many engineers who already rely on the Dlubal structural analysis software when performing structural calculations and design of 2D and 3D structures, such as buildings, walls, columns, frames, or shells.

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.

Masonry Design According to FEM

When it comes to masonry, you are on the right track here. The Masonry Design add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to design masonry surfaces using the finite element method. It was developed as part of the research project DDMaS (Digitizing the Design of Masonry Structures). Here, the material model represents the nonlinear behavior of the brick-mortar combination in the form of macro-modeling.

Geotechnical Analysis using FEM

The Geotechnical Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 uses the properties from soil samples to determine the soil body to be analyzed. The realistic determination of the soil conditions significantly influences the quality of the structural analysis of buildings (soil-structure interaction).

Generation, Analysis, and Evaluation of Building Models

The Building Model add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to define and manipulate your building by means of stories. A great advantage is the possibility to adjust them retroactively and flexibly. Information about the stories and the entire model (a center of gravity) is displayed in tables and graphics.

Consideration of Construction Stages

Stay on track of the construction process with the Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on for RFEM 6. In RFEM, this allows you to consider the construction process of structures (member, surface, and solid structures). Avoid potential mistakes when calculating entire models. These may easily arise when disregarding the influence of the construction process. With the helpful add-on, you can analyze the influences and consider them right up to the structural design.

Structural Dynamic Analysis

To keep your buildings safe even under stormy conditions, the Dynamic Analysis add-ons for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 are here for you. Use them to perform seismic design, vibration analysis of buildings, machine foundation design, natural frequency analysis for bridges and chimneys, and many other dynamic calculations.

Model Optimization Using Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The two-part add-on Optimization & Costs / CO2 Emissions Estimation for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 is your reliable partner for model optimization. On the one hand, it gives you the suitable parameters for parameterized models and blocks via the artificial intelligence technology (AI) of the particle swarm optimization (PSO) in order to comply with the usual optimization criteria. On the other hand, it estimates the model costs or CO2 emissions by specifying unit costs or emissions per material definition for your structural model.

Foundation Design

Make sure you have a stable and precisely dimensioned foundation. The add-on module RF-/FOUNDATION for RFEM 5/RSTAB 8 enables you to precisely design single, bucket and block foundations for all resulting support forces.

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.
