Analysis & Design Software for Scaffolding and Rack 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 engineering.

  1. Scaffolding Support Dependent on Normal Force

    Scaffolding Support Dependent on Normal Force

    In addition to their structural behaviour, the purpose of many temporary structures such as scaffolding or bracing is the adaptation to different geometric conditions. A stable state of the construction is usually achieved by a plated support situation.

  2. Scaffolding Release Dependent on Normal Force

    Scaffolding Release Dependent on Normal Force

    In RFEM, it is possible to simulate a scaffolding tube joint (butt joint with a stub) by a nonlinear member release of the ‘Scaffolding’ type. The joint considers moment resistance dependent on compression forces existing between two outer tubes and the stub also has certain moment resistance based on its bending resistance.
