Useful Program Features
Dlubal Software programs and add-on modules include a wide range of powerful features.
Since our software is subject to continuous development, we are constantly adding new features. In doing so, we also take account of our customers' wishes.
Why Dlubal Software?
Member Type "Dashpot"
The member type "Dashpot" can be used for time history analyses in RFEM/RSTAB with the add-on modules RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations and RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History. This linear viscous damping element considers forces dependent on velocity.
With regard to viscoelasticity, the member type "Dashpot" is similar to the Kelvin-Voigt model which consists of the damping element and an elastic spring (both connected in parallel).
Data exchange with Advance Steel using *.smlx files
When exchanging data with Advance Steel using *.smlx files, the interface is automatically detected. This means that *.smlx files are possible even if no version of Advance Steel is installed.
Material Library with Steels According to the Australian Standard AS/NZS 4600:2005The material database in RFEM, RSTAB and SHAPE-THIN contains steels according to the Australian standard AS/NZS 4600:2005.
Project Navigator - Views
Project Navigator - Views allows you to easily generate various views in a few simple steps. Moreover, you can save and open them again at any time.
It is possible to assign different colours to various objects of a structure in order to make the rendering display of the structure more clearly arranged.
The following categories are available: Materials, Cross‑Sections, Member Types, Member Hinges, Surface Types - Geometry, Surface Types - Stiffness, Surface Thickness, Solid Types, Surface Sides, and User‑Defined Visibilities.
Automatic Generation of Combinations
The “Edit Load Cases and Combinations” dialog box provides the option of the automatic generation of load and result combinations after selecting the corresponding combination expressions. In this clearly arranged dialog box, it is also possible to copy, add, or renumber load cases, for example.
Furthermore, you can manage the load cases and combinations in Tables 2.1 – 2.6.
There is a mass print function for the model data, loads, and results. It is possible to create graphics from different defined directions. For example, you can print all internal forces in an isometric view with a single mouse click.
Intuitive Graphical User-Interface
A structure is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs or by using tables. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects. The user interface is operated intuitively so the structure and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.
Multilingual Program Operation
It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English, German, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
The user‑interface design of RFEM/RSTAB can be customised with any of the nine different styles of graphical user interface (for example Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black).
