Structural Design According to Canadian Standards

Implemented Canadian Standards

  1. Fundamental combinations for bearing resistance according to NBCC

    Automatic Creation of Combinations in RFEM and RSTAB

    In RFEM and RSTAB, load and result combinations are automatically created according to the Canadian standard CAN/CSA S 16.1‑94:1994 or NBCC:2005.

  2. Reinforcement in 3D rendering

    Design of Reinforced Concrete Members and Surfaces According to CSA A23.3

    CSA A23.3 for RFEM/RSTAB extends the range of standards for reinforced concrete design with the Canadian standard CSA A23.3 for various add‑on modules.

  3. Design result of RF-/STEEL CSA in 3D rendering

    Steel Design According to CSA S16

    RF-/STEEL CSA performs the ultimate and serviceability limit state designs of members and sets of members according to the Canadian standards CSA S16‑09 and CSA S16‑14.

  4. Timber design according to Canadian standard

    Timber Design According to CSA 086-09

    RF-/TIMBER CSA performs all typical designs of the ultimate and the serviceability limit state, stability analysis, and fire resistance design of timber members according to the Canadian standards CSA 086-09 and CSA 086‑14.

  5. Natural vibrations of housing complex (C)

    Earthquake Resistance Design According to NBC 2005

    RF-/DYNAM Pro - Natural Vibrations determines natural frequencies and mode shapes.

    RF-/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads generates equivalent lateral loads using multimodal response spectrum analysis according to the Canadian standard NBC 2005.
