Analysis & Design Software for Aluminum and Lightweight Structures

Structural Engineering Software for Aluminum and Lightweight Structures

For the design of aluminum structures, RFEM andRSTAB include all standard cross-sections such as I‑sections, channels, T‑sections, rectangular hollow sections, square tubes, circular tubes, flat steel, and many others. The design is carried out according to the American standard ADM 2020, or Eurocode 9, including numerous National Annexes.

For cable and membrane structures, the initial shape can be found and the relevant calculations performed.

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.

Wind Simulation and Wind Load Generation

The RWIND 2 stand-alone program is recommended for complex structures. This program simulates wind flows around any structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.

The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.

Design of Aluminum Members According to Various Standards

The Aluminum Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state design of aluminium members according to the standards

  • European Union EN 1999-1-1:2013-12 (Eurocode 9)
  • United States ADM 2020 (US standard)

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.

Form-Finding and Analysis of Cable and Membrane Structures

RFEM provides various options for calculating cable and membrane structures. The Form-Finding add-on for RFEM 6 finds the optimal shape of members subjected to axial forces and tension-loaded surface models.

The RF-CUTTING-PATTERN add-on module for RFEM 5 calculates and organizes the cutting pattern for membrane structures.

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.
