has been a key player in the structural software industry since 1988
and offers integrated building solutions for steel, concrete (including
post-tensioning), cold-formed steel, and wood. With RAM becoming part
of the Bentley team we now offer more integrated solutions for the
RAM Concept saves you precious time and money. 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.
RAM Connection is the first fully integrated steel connection design and optimization tool in the industry. Designing, checking and optimizing steel shear, moment, gusset, splice and bracket connections, according to AISC ASD or LRFD, has never been this automated. Assign connections directly to the finite element model and have RAM Connection automatically consider member geometric and material properties, and the analytical results, to choose the best connection for you.
RAM Frame is a state-of-the-art 3D static and dynamic analysis and design program for structural engineers. It is used for lateral frame analysis and design of building systems under lateral, dynamic, and gravity loads.
The RAM Structural System was developed with one primary goal in mind… to help structural engineers increase their productivity so that they can produce better designs, faster. By providing powerful tools that are automated, integrated, and a complete alternative to traditional design methods, the RAM Structural System has accomplished this goal.
