Find a variety of structural glass analysis models to download, which you can use for training purposes or for your projects.
Structural Analysis and Design Software for Glass Structures
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.

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.
See your structures clear as glass. Use the RF-GLASS add-on module for RFEM 5 to easily and efficiently calculate the deformations and stresses of arbitrarily shaped and curved glass surfaces. You can smoothly create all types of glass in the module. That is, single-layer glass as well as laminated and insulating glass.
In the extensive material library, you find many commercially available glass types, foils, and gases. The following standards are implemented for the design:
- DIN 18008: 2010-12
- TRLV: 2006-08
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.
A remarkable free-form roof structure was built at the Xujiahui Commercial Center in Shanghai, China, and inaugurated in June 2017.
It serves as a skylight in the indoor area of the shopping center, and as a canopy in the outdoor area.
The signature feature of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City is the glazed atrium that connects the main entry to both performance venues. The glass facade and the glass skylight are supported entirely by the cable structure. The design was conceived as similar to a cello’s strings.
The Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA, contains the largest collection of Dalí’s artwork outside Spain.
The architectural highlight is the "Enigma", a glazed atrium that drapes over the side of the boxy reinforced concrete building.
Baku Flame Towers is a striking complex of high‑rise buildings in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan.
The complex consists of three 623‑foot‑high towers in the shape of a flame as a symbol of the several oil wells in the region.

The structural frame & truss analysis and design program RSTAB 9 contains a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM, paying special attention to frames and trusses. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis of beam structures consisting of steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and other materials.
