Are there any programs or add-on modules specially developed for glass structures?

Answer

Glass structures can be analyzed in RFEM with the RF‑GLASS add-on module. It is possible to carry out the calculation and design on the entire model or separately.

An extensive material library contains many of the commercially available glass types, layers, and gases.

Define nodes or lines for the support of glass surfaces or model solids. The results include stresses in surfaces and solids, among others.

Main Program RFEM
For the glass design, you need RFEM as the basis. Also, RFEM provides a variety of options for the calculation and design of solid, steel or timber structures.

Add-on Modules
  • RF-GLASS
    Calculation of stresses and deformations of arbitrary shaped and also curved glass surfaces.
Standards
  • DIN 18008: 2010-12
  • TRLV: 2006-08
