RAM Concept

Concrete Slab Design Software

The Go-To for concrete slab and foundation design

Economically design post-tensioned and reinforced concrete floors

what is ram concept?

RAM Concept is structural software for the design of post-tensioned and reinforced concrete floors including slabs, mats, and rafts. It provides exceptional visibility into compliance, efficiency, and practicality. Design floors and foundations reliably and efficiently, saving time and money, and overcoming the most common concerns you face as a designer. RAM Concept allows you to easily design complex floor geometries and incorporate changes with ease using powerful task automation and clearly organized output.

    Optimize post-tensioned concrete floor designs

    Optimize the design of post-tensioning, reinforcement, and studded shear reinforcement for post-tensioned concrete floors using cloud-based optimization. Save engineering time by letting the optimizer sort through thousands of design alternatives and have confidence that your post-tensioned design has reduced material and labor costs.

    Design raft or mat foundations to international standards

    Design 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 with finite element analysis. Reduce time spent waiting for results with 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.

    Analyze deflections for time-dependent effects

    Capture time-varying properties of concrete in your analysis. Account for creep, shrinkage, and cracking at various stages in the analysis, accurately predicting deflections with consideration for how concrete truly behaves.

    Analyze floors for walking vibration

    Study dynamic behavior, including resonant and impulsive effects, of simple and complex concrete floors due to walking vibration. Evaluate sensitivity criteria for occupants or sensitive equipment.
