The structural analysis program RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.
RFEM provides deformations, internal forces, stresses, support forces, and soil contact stresses. The corresponding add-on modules facilitate data input by automatic generation of structures and connections or can be used to perform further analyses and designs according to various standards.
The modular software concept allows you to compile a program package tailored to your individual needs. It is possible to upgrade the program at any time.
Add-on modules for reinforced concrete structures perform design of members and surfaces according to various international standards. In addition, it is possible to perform nonlinear analysis (cracked concrete) as well as design prestressed concrete structures.
Add-on modules for steel and aluminum structures perform design of members and surfaces according to Eurocode (including numerous National annexes) and various international standards.
Here is a list of RFEM add‑on modules available for timber structures.
These modules design members and surfaces according to Eurocode 5 and other international standards.
The RF‑GLASS add‑on module is available for the structural analysis program RFEM and performs the design of glass structures such as panes consisting of laminated and insulated glass.
For RFEM, there are various add‑on modules available for continuous planning of lattice towers.
The modules provide automatic generation of structures and loading, determination of effective lengths, as well as design according to Eurocode.
For design of steel and timber connections, there are numerous add‑on modules available for RFEM. For example, it is possible to design rigid and hinged beam connections, column bases, hollow section and mast connections according to Eurocode 3.
RFEM provides a range of powerful add‑on modules for dynamic analysis.
Among other things, the modules perform seismic and vibration designs of buildings, calculation of machine foundations as well as natural frequency analysis of bridges and chimneys.
For modeling and designing piplines, there are the RF‑PIPING and RF‑PIPING Design add‑on modules available in RFEM.
Piping analysis can be performed for the entire structure, that is in interaction with the support structure.
The structural analysis software RFEM allows for form‑finding and design as well as cutting of tensile membrane structures.
The calculation is performed according to the large deformation analysis.
