The modules within the RFEM Euro Concrete Package

Finite element analysis (FEA) of plates, walls, shells, solids and frameworks

RFEM is a powerful 3D FEA program helping structural engineers to meet requirements in modern civil engineering. Intuitive handling, user friendliness and efficient data input make working with RFEM easy. The RFEM program family is based on a modular 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. Creating combined structures as well as modeling solid and contact elements is also possible. RFEM provides deformations, internal and support forces as well as soil contact stresses. Add-on modules facilitate the data input by creating structures as well as connections automatically and perform further analyses and designs. The modular approach allows you to combine all programs individually according to your needs. Upgrades at a later time are always possible. RFEM offering numerous interfaces represents the perfect tool for a smooth interaction between CAD and structural analysis in Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Reinforced Concrete Design for Members and Surfaces

The add-on module RF-CONCRETE is used for the design of structural components made of reinforced concrete. It consists of two parts:

  • RF-CONCRETE Surfaces designs plates, walls, planar structures and shells for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state
  • RF-CONCRETE Members is used for the reinforced concrete design of member elements

RF-CONCRETE performs the reinforced concrete design of surfaces, members and sets of members for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state. By purchasing the corresponding module extension it is possible to design reinforced concrete structures according to the following standards:
  • EN 1992-1-1:2004 + AC:2010 (EC2 for RFEM is required)
  • DIN 1045-1:2008-08 (DIN 1045-1 for RFEM is required)
  • ACI 318-11 (ACI 318-11 for RFEM is required)
  • SIA 262 (SIA 262 for RFEM is required)
  • GB 50010-2010: Code for Design of Concrete Structures, 1. edition, July 2011 (GB 50010 for RFEM required)

Optionally, you can perform the fire protection design for rectangular and circular cross-sections according to:
  • EN 1992-1-2:2004 (EC2 for RFEM is required)

Advanced Setting for Reinforced Concrete Design According to Eurocode 2

EC2 for RFEM represents an additional standard option for designing reinforced concrete according to EN 1992-1-1: 2004 + AC:2010 (Eurocode 2) including the integrated national application documents (NAD) for the following RFEM add-on modules: RF-CONCRETE, consisting of

  • RF-CONCRETE Surfaces for design of surfaces (plates, walls, planar structures and shells)
  • RF-CONCRETE Members for design of member elements

RF-CONCRETE 2D, consisting of
  • RF-CONCRETE Surfaces for design of surfaces (plates and walls)
  • RF-CONCRETE Members for design of member elements

  • RF-CONCRETE Columns
  • RF-PUNCH
  • RF-CONCRETE NL
  • RF-CONCRETE Deflect

Reinforced Concrete Design According to Model Column Method

The add-on module RF-CONCRETE Columns is a powerful software tool of the RFEM program family used to design reinforced concrete. Take advantage of RF-CONCRETE Columns to perform the ultimate limit state design for rectangular or circular compression elements according to the model column method (method based on nominal curvature). By purchasing the corresponding module extensions you can perform the design according to the following standards:

  • EN 1992-1-1:2004 + AC:2010 (EC2 for RFEM required)
  • DIN 1045-1:2008-08 (DIN 1045-1 for RFEM required)

The fire protection design is carried out according to
  • EN 1992-1-2:2004 (EC2 for RFEM required)
  • DIN 4102-04:2004 or DIN 4102-22:2004 (DIN 1045-1 for RFEM required)

The standards specify that, when determining the internal forces for structural components subjected to compression, you have to take into account the deformations (second-order analysis), if the linear-elastically determined internal forces are increased by more than 10 % due to deformation. To avoid a non-linear calculation that can be checked only with difficulty, it is possible to determine the internal forces affected by deformation in a simplified way using a "model column". In accordance with your user-defined specifications, the program transfers the selected members into model columns.

Physical and Geometrical Nonlinear Calculation of Frameworks and Plate Structures Consisting of Reinforced Concrete

The add-on module RF-CONCRETE NL is an extension to the RF-CONCRETE module group and is organized like the main concrete module in two parts:

  • RF-CONCRETE NL as an extension of RF-CONCRETE Surfaces allows for a realistic calculation of deformations, stresses and crack widths of members, plates, walls, planar structures and shells made of reinforced concrete by taking into account the nonlinear behavior of the composite material when determining internal forces and deformations.
  • RF-CONCRETE NL as an extension of RF-CONCRETE Members makes it possible to perform a nonlinear analysis of 2D and 3D framework structures in the ultimate and serviceability limit states. You are able to carry out for example a nonlinear calculation of compression elements prone to instability risks, or to calculate deformations of frame constructions consisting of reinforced concrete beams close to reality.

Analytical Deformation Analysis of Plate Structures

The add-on module RF-CONCRETE Deflect is an extension of the module groups RF-CONCRETE and RF-CONCRETE 2D. Integrated in RF-CONCRETE Surfaces, the program allows for a deflection analysis of plate structures conforming to standard specifications when performing the analytical serviceability limit state design. The deformation analysis can be carried out according to the following standards:

  • EN 1992-1-1:2004 + AC:2010 (EC2 for RFEM required)
  • DIN 1045-1:2008-08 (DIN 1045-1 for RFEM required)
  • SIA 262:2003 (SIA 262 for RFEM required)
  • ACI 318-11 (ACI 318-11 for RFEM required)
  • GB 50010-2010: Code for Design of Concrete Structures, 1. edition, July 2011 (GB 50010 for RFEM required)

Take advantage of RF-CONCRETE Deflect to quickly and easily perform the design for limiting the deflection of reinforced concrete surfaces by taking into account different cross-section conditions in uncracked and cracked sections (state I/state II).

Punching Shear Design for Plates and Foundations Supported by Columns

The RFEM add-on module RF-PUNCH is used for the design of punching shear resistance for surfaces supported by columns or nodal supports. The governing punching load is automatically determined from the specified load. But it is also possible to apply a concentrated punching load to a plate manually. RF-PUNCH allows for a quick punching shear design without entering lots of data. The following standards are available:

  • EN 1992-1-1:2004 + AC:2010 (EC2 for RFEM required)
  • DIN 1045-1:2008-08 (DIN 1045-1 for RFEM required)

Design of Single, Bucket and Block Foundations

The add-on module RF-FOUNDATION Pro is used to design single, bucket and block foundations for all support forces arising in the RFEM model.
The reinforced concrete design of the foundation is performed according to the standard:

  • EN 1992-1-1:2004 +AC:2010

The geotechnical designs are performed according to the standard:
  • EN 1997-1
In addition to the support forces from RFEM, the program allows for specifying loads to be integrated into the foundation's design. RF-FOUNDATION Pro provides a reinforcement proposal for the upper and lower plate reinforcement which can always be adjusted individually.
