General RFEM RSTAB

What is the difference between RSTAB and RFEM?

Answer

RSTAB is a 3D structural frame analysis program where the design of 2D and 3D frameworks is possible. The efficient RSTAB solver allows for linear and nonlinear calculations of internal forces, deformations, and support reactions.

With RFEM, you extend the member design by plates, shells and solids according to the Finite Element Method. These elements can be combined arbitrarily in a structure. RFEM contains almost all functions from RSTAB; that is why also pure frameworks can be designed with it.

The user interface and the handling of RSTAB and RFEM are almost identical, but RFEM offers more functions due to the greater scope of the program. The import of structure and load date from RSTAB to RFEM and vice versa is possible as long as the objects are supported by both programs.

Various add-on modules are available for structural design in RSTAB and RFEM considering both material and standard-specific requirements. Thanks to the modular software concept, it is possible to put together a program package which is adapted to the individual needs. It is possible to upgrade the program at any time.
