Analysis & Design Software for Buildings
Structural engineering FEA software RFEM 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 analysis and design software RSTAB contains a similar range of functions as RFEM, with special attention to beam, frame and truss structures. Therefore it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of timber structures.
Use the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation for complex structures. This program simulates wind flows around any structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
Dlubal Software provides powerful structural analysis software for construction planning according to Building Information Modeling (BIM).
This is ensured primarily by a wide range of RFEM and RSTAB interfaces (for example direct interfaces with Tekla Structures and Revit Structure).
The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal can be seamlessly integrated into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. A variety of interfaces allows you to exchange data from digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.
The multigenerational house with a view at Lake Constance was built as an environmentally friendly wooden structure and designed as a passive house.
The Dlubal Software customer Pirmin Jung Ingenieure from Sinzig, Germany, was in charge of the structural and dynamic analysis.
The signature feature of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City is the glazed atrium that connects the main entry to both performance venues. The glass facade and the glass skylight are supported entirely by the cable structure. The design was conceived as a cello’s strings.
Brock Commons is a student residence currently under construction at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
The mass timber hybrid structure comprises of five‑ply cross laminated timber (CLT) floor panels, a concrete transfer slab, and a steel framed roof.
The New Candlewood Suites on Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, is the first cross‑laminated timber (CLT) hotel constructed in the US.
This four story building, made of 56,700 ft3 of CLT and 1,200 ft3 of glulam material, serves the lodging needs of the Redstone Arsenal Army post.
The monastery "Little Flower" was built in 2015, situated in beautiful scenery of green meadows, mountains and crystal-clear lakes.
The little monastery is equipped with 18 bedrooms, a chapel, a dining room, a kitchen as well as a conference room.
The historical building of Théâtre Marigny had to undergo renovation due to its serious defects of the roof structure which led to its closure in 2013.
The metastable equilibrium resulted from unreliable planning which did not consider the effects of assymetrical load and the suspended ceiling on the roof structure during construction in 1925.
Cavezzo is one of the towns in the region of Emilia-Romagna damaged by the 2012 earthquake.
As a result of this event, many public and private structures were heavily damaged and became uninhabitable. The municipal gym had damages so serious that it was necessary to completely demolish the existing reinforced concrete structure.

- How do I determine wind loads on structures of any shape?
- Which roof and ground plan shapes can be considered with the wind and snow load generators of RFEM/RSTAB?
- Can I also generate a wind load on roof overhangs using the load generator?
- The building that I calculate is located in the North German Plain. How can I consider the increased snow load?
- I would like to extend an existing structure with a false ceiling that is not connected to the existing columns. How can I model it?
- For line releases, I obtain the resultants in the horizontal direction, which I cannot understand.
- How can I display wind speeds at a certain height above the ground for a wind comfort analysis?
- Can I also use the wind load generator for open buildings?
- When evaluating the support reactions of a plate supported by line supports, I noticed that the support reaction pz' does not correspond to the shear force and deviates significantly. What is the reason?
- How is it possible to consider the real cross-section geometry of member elements in RWIND Simulation?
