Analysis and Design Software for Container Structures

FEM Structural Analysis Software

The structural engineering software for analysis and design 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.

    Design of Fillet Welds According to EN 1993-1-8

    A fillet weld is the most common weld type in steel building construction. According to EN 1993‑1‑8, 4.3.2.1 (1) [1], fillet welds may be used for connecting structural parts where the fusion faces form an angle between 60° and 120°.

    Calculating Critical Load Factor for Linear Buckling Analysis

    Buckling analysis according to the effective width method or the reduced stress method is based on the determination of the system critical load, hereinafter called LBA (linear buckling analysis). This article explains the analytical calculation of the critical load factor as well as utilisation of the finite element method (FEM).
