RAM Foundation

Product Description

RAM Foundation is an integrated module within the RAM Structural System that performs the design, evaluation and analysis of spread, continuous and pile cap foundations.

RAM Foundation quickly produces optimum foundation designs for the entire structure based on a wide range of customizable design criteria and user options. With its interactive tools, designs can be refined for both foundation dimensions and steel reinforcement. Once designed, foundation calculations, details and foundation plans are produced with just a few clicks of the mouse using RAM’s customizable reports and dxf output capabilities.

RAM Foundation provides structural engineers with flexibility, offering a multitude of foundation types including spread, continuous and pile caps. Time saving and accurate modeling and revision tools are available for customized user control of the final designs. Through the integration with the RAM Structural System duplication of effort is eliminated by allowing for the creation of a single model for the design of the structure and foundations.

Feature List

  • An efficient environment is created when dealing with changes through the integration between the structure and foundation model utilizing RAM Structural System. Changes are automatically tracked all the way down to the foundations.
  • Comprehensive design and documentation is provided through designs of multiple foundation types, multiple design codes with U.S. and metric bar sizes, and design optimization. Once designed, foundation calculations, details and foundation plans are produced with just a few clicks of the mouse.
  • The interactive modeling and revision tools save time through a physical modeling system and a graphical display of design and results with a View Update tool. With its interactive tools, designs can be refined for both foundation dimensions and steel reinforcement.
