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


RFEM provides a perfect basis for the calculation and design of piping systems. The add-on modules RF‑PIPING and RF‑PIPING Design provide you with a support for modeling and design.

Since it is also possible to model supporting structures and other components of the entire model, an analysis and design close to reality is possible.

Main Program RFEM
The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and actions.

Add-on Modules
    Modeling of pipelines including specific piping components, such as valves, flanges or fittings.
  • 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 it is necessary to perform seismic analysis or vibration designs of a building, the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on modules provide special tools for determining natural frequencies and mode shapes, for an analysis of forced vibrations, a generation of equivalent loads, or for a nonlinear time history analysis.
