Structural Analysis and Design Software for Bridges

Software for Structural Analysis and Design of Bridges

Many users rely on the structural analysis software RFEM (FEA) and RSTAB (frames and trusses) when analyzing and designing steel bridges.

Use the powerful add-ons to generate, for example, influence lines, moving loads on members and surfaces, and more. You can also perform dynamic analyses and additional design checks of stability, ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state, as well as considering construction stages.

Structural FEM Analysis and Design

The successful structural analysis program RFEM 6 by Dlubal Software is the basis of a modular program family that you can customize and combine according to your precise requirements. In the main program RFEM, you can define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. Furthermore, you can create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.

Structural Frame & Truss Analysis Software

Use the Dlubal spatial frame & truss analysis software RSTAB 9 if you need a special solution tailored to beam, frame, and truss structures. Due to the special attention to such structures, it is even easier to use than the FEA software RFEM. This program has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of pure structural member models for many years.

Wind Simulation and Wind Load Generation

Do your structures have to withstand every gust of wind? Then it is best to use the Dlubal stand-alone program RWIND 2. It is particularly recommended for complex model shapes. There are wind flows around all structures simulated in a digital wind tunnel.

You can easily import your generated wind loads acting on these objects into RFEM or RSTAB. Thus, you can complete your project there.

Consideration of Construction Stages

Stay on track of the construction process with the Construction Stages Analysis (CSA) add-on for RFEM 6. In RFEM, this allows you to consider the construction process of structures (member, surface, and solid structures). Avoid potential mistakes when calculating entire models. These may easily arise when disregarding the influence of the construction process. With the helpful add-on, you can analyze the influences and consider them right up to the structural design.

Add-ons and Add-on Modules for Bridge Design

Depending on the material you plan to use for your bridge construction, here you will find various add-ons or add-on modules for the structural analysis. Simply select the relevant industry:

Use other useful add-on modules 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 allows you to exchange the data of digital building models with RFEM or RSTAB.

Use the Webservice (a programmable interface) to read or write the data from or to RFEM and RSTAB.
