SIA Standards

Swiss SIA Standards

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

  • SIA 260 (load cases/load combinations)
  • SIA 261 (loads)
  • SIA 262 (reinforced concrete structures)
  • SIA 263 (steel structures)
  • SIA 265 (timber structures)

Implemented Swiss Standards

1

Automatic Generation of Combinations in RFEM and RSTAB

In RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9, load and result combinations are automatically created according to the Swiss standards SIA 260 and SIA 260 | Timber.

2

Timber Design According to SIA 265

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 Swiss standard SIA 265.

3

Seismic Design According to SIA 261

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 using the multi-modal response spectrum analysis. Among others, the Swiss standard SIA 261 is implemented.

4

Design of Reinforced Concrete Members and Surfaces According to SIA 262

The module extension SIA 262 for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 extends various add-on modules for concrete design by the Swiss standard SIA 262.

5

Steel Design According to SIA 263

The RF-/STEEL SIA add-on module for RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8 performs the ultimate and serviceability limit state design of members and continuous members according to the Swiss standard SIA 263.

Customer Projects Designed with Dlubal Products

Fascinating customer projects designed with the Dlubal structural analysis software.

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.

Response Spectrum Analysis

Dynamic Analysis

In the Response Spectrum Analysis add-on, seismic analysis is performed using multi-modal response spectrum analysis. The spectra required for this can be created in compliance with the standards or can be user-defined. The equivalent static forces are generated from this. The add-on includes an extensive library of accelerograms from seismic zones. These can be used to generate response spectra.
