Is it possible to analyze and design piping systems with RFEM?


It is possible because RFEM provides the perfect basis for the calculation and design of piping systems. The RF-PIPING and RF-PIPING Design add-on modules provide support for modeling and design.

Since support structures and other components of the entire model can also be represented, a realistic analysis and design is possible.

Main Programs of RFEM 
The RFEM basic programs are used to define structures, materials, and actions.

Add-on modules
    Modeling of pipelines including typical fittings such as valves, flanges or reducers.
  • RF-PIPING Design
    Comparison of existing and allowable stresses of piping systems

Available Standards
  • EN 13480-3
  • ASME B31.1
  • ASME B31.3
Dynamic Analysis
If earthquake calculations or vibration analyses are necessary on the building, the RF-/DYNAM Pro add-on modules provide suitable tools for determining natural frequencies and shapes, analysis of forced vibrations, for generating equivalent loads, or for nonlinear time history analysis.
