RAM Elements CONNECT Edition

Practical FEM Structural analysis and design toolkit

 RAM Elements CONNECT Edition is a unique combination of a 3D finite element analysis & design software with Structural engineering toolkit modules for everyday engineering design and practical needs

 RAM Elements CONNECT Edition features;

  • Design of hot-rolled and cold-formed steel, wood, masonry, and concrete can be done, all within a single model in one interface.


  • Provides structural engineers with a toolkit set of modules for the analysis and design of structural elements, including
    • concrete beams
    • continuous beams
    • Reinforced concrete columns
    • Wood structures, trusses, spread, or combined footings
    • Retaining walls, tilt-up walls, concrete walls, and masonry walls.


  • Full 3D finite element analysis (FEM) capabilities are also in RAM Elements.


  • Integrate with RAM Connection CONNECT Edition with an appropriate license. Steel connections can be designed without leaving the RAM Elements interface.
