In addition to our technical support (e.g. via chat), you’ll find resources on our website that may help you with your design using Dlubal Software.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
Yes, it is because the CONCRETE module of RSTAB 8 also includes the nonlinear reinforced concrete design. Thus, you can activate the 'Nonlinear Analysis (State II)' in the 'Ultimate Limit State' tab.
In the detail settings for the nonlinear design, you can select the 'General Design Method for Members in Axial Compression acc. to Second Order Theory'.
It is important that you define the imperfections in RSTAB and apply load curves (CO) according to the second-order analysis for the design, no result combinations (RC)!
Note on RFEM 5:
In RFEM 5, the same procedure is possible in RF-CONCRETE Members. However, the add-on module RF-CONCRETE NL in RFEM is required for the non-linear reinforced concrete design.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
“Thank you for the valuable information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. I have used a lot of software with a support contract in the field of structural analysis, but your support is by far the best. ”
