Mechanical Engineering Analysis and 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 and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid 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 beam, frame, or truss structures. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural analysis.

Stress Analysis and Design

RF-/STEEL performs general stress designs by calculating the existing stresses and comparing the results with limit stresses.

Pipe Stress Analysis and Piping Design

RFEM and the correspoding add-on modules allow for modeling of piping systems (including piping components such as valves, reducers, flanges, tees and others) and performs design of pipeline networks.

  1. Displaying Normal and Shear Stresses

    Displaying Normal and Shear Stresses

    In RFEM version 5.04.xx, there is a new feature of a sophisticated graphical display of normal and shear stresses on members. It is only available for the licensed RF‑STEEL add‑on module.

  2. Input Time Diagrams Directly as Functions in RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations

    Input Time Diagrams Directly as Functions

    In RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations you can define time diagrams directly as functions in an edit field. The parameter t is reserved for the time steps, but beside that all parameters as defined in the ‘Edit Parameter’ dialogue can be used in RF‑/DYNAM Pro.
