    RAM Concrete

    Your go-to concrete design workhorse

Concrete Design and Analysis Software

Efficiently obtain reinforcement quantities for both your gravity and lateral frames, and quickly compare alternative design schemes with accurate material takeoffs for all of your concrete projects. Increase productivity and provide superior service to your clients, from conceptual design through construction, by producing detailed drawings and accurate cost estimates even in the most preliminary stages of your projects. Quickly design and analyze any concrete project with confidence, complying with international concrete specification requirements. RAM Concrete automatically performs live load reduction and skip loading, and comprehensively investigates reinforcing design and detail requirements for beams, columns, and walls. Easily produce complete CAD files on the fly for your floor framing plans, frame and wall elevations, and beam and column schedules.

Capabilities
  • Analyze gravity and lateral load

    • Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic.
  • Comply with seismic requirements

    • Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing.
  • Design beams, columns and walls

    • Optimize or analyze beams, columns, and walls for gravity and lateral loads to quickly obtain safe and economical designs. Confidently produce designs in compliance with global design specifications and building codes.
  • Design to international standards

    • Extend the reach of your business practice and take advantage of global design opportunities by using a wide range of international standards and specifications in our design products. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of international standards.
  • Detail and schedule concrete reinforcing

    • Produce rebar placing drawings, including sections, plans, details, bar bending schedules, material take-offs and beam/column/footing schedules, all based on the 3D model. All schedules and drawings can be customized to adhere to your company’s standards for concrete projects.
  • Generate design loads and load combinations

    • Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.
  • Produce structural design documentation

    • Generate structural design documents including necessary plans and elevations that are used to convey the design intent. Changes made to the 3D model are automatically updated in the documentation.
  • Share structural models

    • Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronize changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.
