    RAM Foundation

    Your go-to foundation analysis and design workhorse

Foundation Design and Analysis Software

Efficiently produce optimum foundation designs for your entire structure, all based on a wide range of design criteria and options that you can easily customize to your preferences. Save time and money by performing the analysis, design, and evaluation of your spread, continuous, and pile cap foundations, all in one integrated application. With RAM Foundation you can quickly refine your designs for both foundation dimensions and steel reinforcement. Once your design is complete, you can easily produce foundation calculations, details, and foundation plans using RAM Foundations' customizable reports and DXF output capabilities.

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 and analyze structural models

    • Quickly model your entire structure, including decks, slabs, slab edges and openings, beams, columns, walls, braces, spread and continuous footings, and pile caps. Efficiently automate many of your time-consuming design and analysis tasks and produce practical system and component designs that are document ready.
  • Design foundations to international standards

    • Design a wide variety of foundations, from simple spread footings to complicated mats and specialized machinery pads. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of U.S. and international standards.
  • Design to international design 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 U.S. and international standards.
  • Detail and schedule concrete rebar

    • 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.
  • Model building structures

    • Model, analyze, and design with intuitive applications tailored especially to the needs of building structures. Quickly obtain comprehensive and thorough designs that conform to U.S. and international building code requirements.
  • Produce structural design documentation

    • Generate structural design documents automatically, 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.
