The stand-alone program SHAPE‑THIN determines the section properties of any thin-walled and cold-formed cross‑section and calculates the stresses. In addition, it is possible to perform plastic design.
The stand-alone program SHAPE‑MASSIVE determines the section properties of any thick-walled cross-section and calculates the stresses. In addition, it is possible to perform reinforced concrete design according to Eurocode 2 and other standards.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- What is the difference between the dongle drivers of CRANEWAY and RFEM or RSTAB?
- How can I use the Connect Lines/Members function using the COM interface?
- I would like to import a dxf file with a long file name into RFEM/RSTAB. Unfortunately, I get the error message that the file cannot be found. What should I do?
- Which filter settings should be selected within the material library for concrete if you want to perform a design in RF-CONCRETE according to the Swedish National Annex? In RFEM, there is no Swedish standard group available for selection.
- I noticed deviations from my sources in the online service of "Snow Load Zones, Wind Zones, and Seismic Zones". Where can I find information about the sources of your online service?
- I have analyzed two models of an inclined bored pile as a support with defined spring stiffness. A surface that can be moved horizontally (globally) is used for the force transmission. The bored pile in model A is a support inclined by 15 ° with a spring stiffness of 2000 kN/m in the axial direction. The bored pile of model B represents a support with defined spring stiffnesses, divided into the respective horizontal and vertical components. The value of the spring stiffness is always the same (2000 kN/m). In my opinion, the two models are equivalent. Why are there different results in the deformation anyway?
- In the online service of "Snow load zones, wind zones and seismic zones" , I noticed a deviation from the map of DIN EN 1998-1 or DIN 4149 for the seismic zone. Can you tell me which map is current and thus governing?
- How can I export reinforcement results from RF-CONCRETE Surfaces to Excel?
- I have just noticed that the STEEL EC3 add -on module also calculates with γM0 = 1.0 when designing a tension member, although it should actually be γM2 = 1.25. How can I perform the design correctly?
- Why does the FE mesh of my cone membrane look angular after form-finding?
