Canadian Standards

The following Canadian standards are implemented in structural analysis programs by Dlubal Software:


  • CAN/CSA S 16.1 (load cases/load combinations)
  • CSA A23.3 (reinforced concrete structures)
  • CSA S16 (steel structures)
  • CSA O86 (timber structures)
  • NBC (earthquake)

Implemented Canadian Standards

1

Automatic Generation of Combinations in RFEM and RSTAB

If you are planning buildings for Canada, Dlubal structural analysis programs are here for you, of course. In RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, you can automatically generate load and result combinations according to the Canadian standards CAN/CSA, NBCC, and CSA O86.

2

Design of Reinforced Concrete Members and Surfaces According to CSA A23.3-14

The construction of reinforced concrete structures conforming the design standards is no problem with the Dlubal programs. For reinforced concrete design in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, the Canadian standard CSA A23.3 is available.

3

Steel Design According to CSA S16 and CSA S136

The Steel Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 performs the ultimate limit state and the serviceability limit state design of steel members according to the Canadian standard CSA S16.

Furthermore, you can also design cold-formed steel sections according to the Canadian standard CSA S136.

4

Timber Design According to CSA O86

Do you work with timber? The Timber Design add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 performs all typical ultimate limit state, stability, serviceability limit state, and fire resistance design checks of timber members according to the Canadian standard CSA O86.

5

Seismic Analysis Design According to NBC 2015

Stay on the safe side with these add-ons, even if the ground trembles.

The Modal Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 allows you to determine natural frequencies and mode shapes.

In the Response Spectrum Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, the seismic analysis is performed for you using the multi-modal response spectrum analysis. Among others, the Canadian standard NBC 2015 is implemented.

6

Design of Multilayer Surfaces (such as Laminate, CLT) According to CSA O86

The Multilayer Surfaces (such as Laminate, CLT) add-on allows you to define multilayer surface structures, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), and perform the design in the Timber Design add-on according to the Canadian standard CSA O86.

RFEM 6
Hall with Arched Roof

Main Program

The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. 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 can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.

RSTAB 9
Structural Frame and Truss Analysis Software

Main Program

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.
