RAM Concrete

Product Description

RAM Concrete is the only fully integrated concrete analysis, design and drafting package for structural engineers. While other software may make the same claims, no other package actually delivers by allowing you to model an entire concrete structure. RAM Concrete is part of RAM Structural System, the only system in the world which allows for the complete analysis, design and drafting of the lateral and gravity framing systems of both steel and concrete buildings as well as their foundations.

Feature List

  • Quick modelling of gravity and lateral concrete structures.
  • Special commands to ease modelling of pan-joist systems.
  • Automatic calculation of T-shaped beam sections taking into consideration adjacent slab conditions.
  • Integration with the RAM Structural System means reduced learning curve for current users.
  • Integration with RAM Concept for reinforced and post-tensioned slabs and mats.
  • Automatic calculation of member section properties, including effective flange widths for T-sections and material properties per design code.
  • Automatic or manual user-definition of beam line for skip loading.
  • Automatic Finite Element model creation for gravity force analysis per ACI 318.
  • Automatic gravity load distribution and live load reduction.
  • Automatic live load skip loading for column forces incorporating ACI 318, Section 8.8.
  • Automatic live load skip loading for beam forces incorporating ACI 318, Section 8.9.
  • User control of torsional stiffness for analysis.
  • Graphical display of applied loads and analysis results.
  • Comprehensive reports of beam gravity desing envelopes and column design forces.
  • Complete integration with RAM Frame for generation of lateral loads and member forces.
  • Building codes supported include IBC 2003, IBC 2000, BOCA 1999, SBC 1999, and UBC 1997, IBC 2006.
