Analysis & Design Software for Power Plants

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 analysis.

More Add-on Modules for Design of Power Plants

Depending on the material used in the power plant structures, you can find more useful add-on modules for structural analysis under the Steel Structures and Concrete Structures industries.

    Downstand Beams, Ribs, T-Beams: Modeling and Determination of Internal Forces

    Downstand beams or T-beams are often used in reinforced concrete structures. In contrast to the previous representation and calculation options where, for example, a downstand beam was considered as a fixed support and the determined support reaction was applied to a separate member structure using a T-beam section, the ultimate structural FEA software like RFEM allow you to consider the structure as a whole and thus achieve a more precise analysis.
