Analysis & Design Software for Swimming Pools, Water Parks, and Lidos

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. 1 - System and Loading

    Design of Slender Steel Cross-Sections and Application of High-Strength Steels in RF-/STEEL EC3

    The steel columns displayed in Figure 1 are subjected to specific loads, and their flexural buckling in the plane is to be analyzed. All the cross-sections used are square hollow sections. The aim is to come to a conclusion in terms of efficiency and to examine the application of higher steel strengths.

  2. 1 - Time-Dependent Settlement Components [2]

    Settlement Calculation of Single Foundations According to DIN 4019 in RF-/FOUNDATION Pro

    For the serviceability limit state design according to Section 6.6 of Eurocode EN 1997-1, settlement has to be calculated for spread foundations. RF-/FOUNDATION Pro allows you to perform the settlement calculation for a single foundation. For this, you can select between elastic or solid foundation. By defining a soil profile, it is possible to consider several soil layers under the foundation base. The results of the settlement, foundation tilting, and vertical soil contact stress distribution are displayed graphically and in tables to provide a quick and clear overview of the calculation performed. In addition to the design of the foundation settlement in RF-/FOUNDATION Pro, the structural analysis determines the representative spring constants for the support and can be exported to the structural model of RFEM or RSTAB.
