Structural Analysis and Design Software for Bridges

Software for Structural Analysis and Design of Bridges

Many users rely on RFEM and RSTAB when analyzing and designing bridges consisting of steel, reinforced concrete, timber, or other materials.

By using the helpful add-on modules, it is possible to generate influence lines, moving loads on members and surfaces, and more. It is also possible to perform dynamic analysis as well as the required stability analysis, buckling analysis, and fatigue design.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The structural analysis software RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular program family. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of 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.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

The structural frame analysis software RSTAB 9 has a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM. Due to the special attention to beam, frame, or truss structures, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models.

Consideration of Construction Stages

The Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on for RFEM 6 allows you to consider the construction process of structures (member, surface, and solid structures). Neglecting the influence of the construction process can lead to errors in the calculation of overall models. With the Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on, you can analyze these influences and consider them up to the point of the structural design.

Add-ons and Add-on Modules for Bridge Design

Depending on the material used, we recommend the add-ons and add-on modules of the Steel Structures, Concrete Structures, and Timber Structures industries for the structural analysis of bridges.

Other useful add-on modules are used to generate moving loads on members and surfaces as well as to determine influence lines and surfaces:

Interfaces for Data Exchange

The structural analysis software provided by Dlubal Software can be integrated seamlessly into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. The large number of interfaces ensures the data exchange of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

The web service (programmable interface) can be used to read or write data from/to RFEM and RSTAB.
