RAM Concept

Product Description

No matter how complicated, an entire elevated slab or mat foundation can be designed more efficiently using RAM Concept. It accounts for steps, openings, complicated loadings and other irregularities.

Developed for reinforced or post-tensioned slabs and mats, RAM Concept will save you precious time and money in the design of concrete structures. Its finite element based analysis provides major advantages over conventional strip methods, allowing you to handle complex floor design more accurately and with more confidence in the results. Also, when changes occur you can make them quickly and redesign the entire slab or mat instead of dealing with changes in many individual strips. The ability to model in slabs and mats quickly is provided by allowing you to import drawings to use as a background.

In addition, RAM Concept links with RAM Structural System and STAAD.Pro, which allows engineers to perform gravity and lateral analysis and design on multi-story 2 way slab (post-tensioned or mild reinforced) concrete buildings.
