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,
ntegrated, and a complete alternative to traditional design methods, the RAM
Structural System has accomplished this goal.
The RAM Structural System is currently increasing the productivity of
thousands of engineers worldwide in the design of a wide variety of
institutional, commercial, retail, residential and industrial building
structures, from one story buildings to some of the tallest structures
in the world.
Used by thousands of design firms, steel fabricators, educators, and others;
from one-person firms to some of the largest E&C companies in the world, the
RAM Structural System is helping to redefine how engineers work!
RAM allows us to spend more time on the detailing and coordination and less
on the engineering thereby allowing us to produce a more detailed and hence
a better product.
Unlike most structural software packages that solve only specific and isolated
problems, the RAM Structural System is a fully integrated solution.
It enhances your work every step of the way, integrating gravity and lateral
analysis and design with the creation of detailed and usable CAD drawings.
Consider the time you spend on these tasks in your office:
Comparing alternative framing systems and providing accurate conceptual designs,
Calculating and distributing gravity and lateral loads and reducing live loads,
including wind and seismic loads per IBC 2000, UBC, BOCA, SBC, ASCE7, Canadian,
British and Eurocodes,
Composite and noncomposite steel design and joist selection,
Concrete Design per ACI including full skip loading analysis of the floor systems,
Designing your foundations,
Developing CAD drawings for floor framing plans, beam and column schedules,
frame elevations, and foundation plans,
Calculating masses and Rho factors for seismic design,
Designing steel connections,
And keeping up with project changes
