Structural Analysis and Design Software for Eurocodes (EC)

Consistent Planning with RFEM and RSTAB According to European Standards (EN)

Eurocodes

Eurocodes

The Eurocodes (EC for short) are standardized rules for designing in civil engineering throughout Europe.

There are currently 10 Eurocodes (EC 0 to EC 9 in the standards EN 1990 to EN 1999). These are further subdivided. The Eurocode consists of 58 partial standards.

In addition, the standards committees of the member states create a National Annex for each Eurocode, in which the parameters to be defined nationally, such as partial safety factors, are defined.

Structure of the Eurocode:
  • Eurocode 0: Basics
  • Eurocode 1: Actions
  • Eurocode 2: Concrete structure
  • Eurocode 3: Steel structure
  • Eurocode 4: Composite construction
  • Eurocode 5: Timber structure
  • Eurocode 6: Masonry construction
  • Eurocode 7: Foundation
  • Eurocode 8: Earthquake
  • Eurocode 9: Aluminum structures

Most Suitable Software for Structural Analyses According to Eurocodes

“We decided to work with RFEM by Dlubal Software for the calculation of our three-dimensional steel structures after the analysis of different offers on the market. It is the software which seems to be the most suitable for analyses according to Eurocode standards. With its clear and intuitive interface, the data and the results can be entered visibly and editably in a smooth and efficient way which minimizes the effect of a "black box".

The technical support is remarkably patient, competent and responds quickly which confirmed our decision in favor of RFEM. The tutorials, the blog and the detailed user manuals allow a self-study and a comprehensive initial training and then a continuous learning of new functions. A further positive aspect is the modular structure which makes it possible to enlarge the offer based on the same main program without important learning phase. Even if we decide tomorrow to focus more in timber, aluminum or glass structures, the calculation will not be a blocking element for us.”

Combinations According to Eurocode 0 (EC 0)

Plan your buildings safely and according to the European standards. In both main programs RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9, you can easily and efficiently generate load and result combinations according to Eurocode 0 (EN 1990). Furthermore, it is also possible to determine imperfections according to Eurocode inboth programs. The actions are assigned to the action types of the standard. RFEM and RSTAB then combine the load cases according to the selected design situations.

Actions According to Eurocode 1 (EC 1)

Do you want to make sure that your structure can withstand any weather? Then you only need the main programs RFEM 6 or RSTAB 9. Both programs provide you with the option of generating wind and snow loads without any additional add-ons. After entering the required parameters, such as wind and snow load zone, roof geometry, and so on, the program automatically generates the respective loading.

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.
