RAM Concept Capabilities
Design post-tensioned and conventional concrete floors
Design elevated concrete slabs with or without post-tensioning. Consider all major aspects of slab design, including service, ductility, and strength limit states, punching shear requirements, long-term deflections, and walking vibration.
Design raft or mat foundations to international standards
Design raft or mat foundations using soil springs and a zero-tension analysis. Confidently complete your designs with the extensive support of international standards.
Design and analyze with finite elements
Complete building analysis, design, and drafting for the entire structure accurately and efficiently using our state-of-the-art finite element analysis. Reduce or eliminate the time spent waiting for results using our fast solvers.
Analyze gravity, lateral, and temperature loads
Design and analyze simple or complex concrete floors for a wide range of loading conditions, including skip live loads, wind/seismic loads, and temperature loads.
Optimize post-tensioned concrete floor designs
Optimize the design of post-tensioning, reinforcement, and studded shear reinforcement for post-tensioned concrete floors using a cloud-based optimization feature. Save hours of engineering time by eliminating the need for tedious manual iteration. Let the optimizer sort through thousands of design alternatives and have confidence that your post-tensioned design has reduced material and labor costs.
Integrate with RAM Structural System
Transfer floor or raft/mat foundation geometry and loading, including lateral load effects, from RAM Structural System. Export reactions, including post-tensioning effects, to RAM Structural System for column design.
