  • Answer

    Both RFEM and RSTAB are ideally suited for the application in mechanical engineering and are used by numerous users in daily practice. Due to the modular system, you can only use the add-on modules required for your purposes.

    Main Programs RFEM or RSTAB
    The main programs are used to define structures, materials, and loads.

    RSTAB provides optimal tools for beam, truss or frame structures.
    In addition, RFEM provides you with additional options to calculate the structures with surface or solid elements.

    Add-on modules
    Dynamic Analyses
    In case a seismic analysis or vibration designs are required, 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.

    If you have any question about the Dlubal Software programs, please do not hesitate to contact the sales department.

First Steps

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.

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.

Your support is by far the best

“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. ”
