(Last Updated On: January 9, 2018)

Dlubal Software has released 6.62.01 version of SHAPE-MASSIVE, is determines section properties of any thick-walled cross?section and calculates the stresses. In addition, you can perform reinforced concrete design according to Eurocode 2 and other standards.

About Dlubal SHAPE-MASSIVE. SHAPE-MASSIVE provides the option of interface with RFEM and RSTAB: SHAPE‑MASSIVE cross‑sections are available in the library of the FEA or frame analysis software, and vice versa, it is possible to import and design the internal forces from RFEM and RSTAB in SHAPE‑MASSIVE.

The structural data can be entered graphically, in tables, or by means of a DXF file

About Dlubal Software. Since its beginnings in 1987, the Dlubal company has been involved in the development of user-friendly and powerful software for structural and dynamic analysis. With RSTAB and RFEM Dlubal offers programs for the ambitious structural engineer that meets the requirements of modern civil engineering and mirrors the current state of art. RSTAB is a 3D framework program, while RFEM represents a 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program. Both are the basis of a modular software system: This basic module calculates internal forces, deformations and support reactions. For the following design, add-on modules are available which account for the specific requirements of materials and codes. Due to this modular conception of the software, a package can be assembled that is tailored to individual demands.

Features:
Cross-section modeling using surfaces, openings, and point areas (reinforcements) limited by polygons
Automatic or individual arrangement of stress points
Extendable library of concrete, steel and reinforcing steel materials
Cross-section properties of reinforced concrete and composite cross-sections
Stress analysis with yield hypothesis according to von Mises and Tresca

Input
It is possible to freely model a cross-section using surfaces limited by polygonal lines, including openings and point areas (reinforcements). Alternatively, you can use the DXF interface to import the geometry. An extensive material library facilitates modeling of composite cross-sections.
Definition of limit diameters and priorities allows for a curtailment of reinforcements. In addition, you can consider the respective concrete covers and prestresses.
