AnswerBoth RFEM and RSTAB provide a suitable solution. In addition to Eurocode 2, the international standards, such as ACI 318, CSA A23.3, SIA 262, or GB 50010, are also available for the design in both programs.
With the add-on modules for designing columns or foundations, or for punching shear designs, it is possible to quickly and reliably calculate the structural components.
Main Programs RFEM or RSTABThe main programs RFEM or RSTAB are used to define structures, materials, and actions.
For reinforced concrete structures, RFEM is clearly the first choice as it allows you to also create structural systems consisting of plates, walls and shells in addition to spatial frame structures. RFEM is the more diverse variant as it can be equipped and extended with the corresponding add-on modules for all materials and designs.

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

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. ”
