Ram frame is used for lateral analysis and design. One of the main advantages of using this tool is that it has fully integrated gravity along with lateral analysis design. For added advantage, this tool is also integrated with Ram steel, concrete and foundation.
The basic problem which engineers face these days is the designs have to go through multiple phases along with continuous change in the overall constructions. Therefore, this integration brings everything under one roof. This allows the engineers to have just one model of gravity and lateral analysis and design. All these factors help in dealing with the changes in the timely manner.
Ram frame’s automated processes computes the building codes lateral design loads and combination for winds.
Its advanced dynamic analysis generates all load cases by combining current building design codes. Apart from that it also automatically transfers the entire load from Ram concrete and Ram steel to the lateral system.
Frame’s standard provisions allow it to joint design checks on different and variety design codes for e.g.
The other important and major features are listed below:
Automatically generating seismic load.
It supports all concentric braced frames.
Every seismic zone is supported along with each seismic code.
All the reports can be exported to Ram steel and concrete.
Its interactive view makes it easier to view the details of individual member size.
It’s easier to redefine a design.
