  • Answer

    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.

    If you have any further questions on the Dlubal 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. ”
