Analysis & Design Software for Conveyor Structures

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 and truss structures. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural engineers.

  1. 1 - Structural System

    Simplified Calculation of Critical Load According to EN 1993-1-1

    Critical load factors and the corresponding mode shapes of any structure can be efficiently determined in RFEM and RSTAB using the RF-STABILITY or RSBUCK add-on module (linear eigenvalue solver or nonlinear analysis).
