Structural and Stress Analysis Software for Pipelines

For Structural and Dynamic Analysis of Piping Systems

RFEM provides the RF-PIPING and RF-PIPING Design add‑on modules for pipe modeling and design.

As soon as the pipelines are supported on auxiliary or supporting structures, it is recommended to carry out the modeling on the entire structure. The interaction between the piping system and the supporting structure allows for a quick and realistic analysis and design.

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.

Modeling of Pipelines

RF‑PIPING can model pipelines and define loads conforming to relevant standards.

It is possible to define specific piping components such as valves, reducers, fittings, flanges, tees, expansion joints, and others, and consider them together with the supporting structure.

Piping Design and Pipe Stress Analysis

RF‑PIPING Design compares the existing pipe stresses with the allowable stresses according to EN 13480‑3, ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3.

Dynamic Analysis of Vibrations and Seismic Design

For dynamic analysis of piping systems, there are various add‑modules available for determination of natural vibrations and mode shapes, forced vibration analysis and generation of equivalent lateral loads for earthquakes.

Interfaces for Data Exchange

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.
