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 structural steel connections
Design and detail structural steel connections, including beam-to-beam, beam-to-column, brace end, anchorage into concrete, and complex multi-member connections. Simplify the arrangement of plates, stiffeners, bolts, and welds with a comprehensive library of standard connection types. Easily compare the economy and practicality of connection scenarios.
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.
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.
Produce structural details
Produce detailed 2D drawings directly from design results established in the structural model. Customize the style and format of the drawings using settings offered within the software.Whats New:
- IS 800:2007 Indian steel design standard for connection design.
- RAM Connection now includes Bentley CONNECT Advisor v10.0.2 which is a CONNECT service enabling Bentley users to have real time access to LEARN content, recommendations for more productive workflows and the ability to embed an Expert Engineer to their CONNECTED project.
- Small improvements to the design reports for better reading.
- Update to Structural Synchronizer (ISM) 6.0.Resolved Issues:
- A miscalculation of the gusset buckling Whitmore capacity when the brace formed a small angle with the beam has been corrected.
- The effective length factor "K" was being calculated incorrectly for the Whitmore buckling code check in gusset connections.
- The length used to calculate web crippling in Gusset connections used a unitary equivalent length when Design Guide 29 states the actual lengths have to be used. This has now been updated to comply with the aforementioned guide.
- The prying effects calculation for Cap Plates, erroneously used the beam flange thickness instead of the cap plate thickness. This has been corrected.
- For the calculation of normal stresses in a beam-to-gusset interface, an equation from a different reference was being used. The application has now been updated to use the equation in Design Guide 29.
- The beam web thickness check for Single Plate connections with a skew angle, has been eliminated by recommendation of the AISC Solution Center.
- For EN 1993 connection design, the software followed a criterion only applicable for tension/compression members for the bolt pitch (or gage). Now it follows BCSA recommendations the same.
- The Cap Plate web crippling check followed the same procedure for AISC 360-05 and AISC 360-10. This has now been corrected to follow the correspondent method, since it has changed from the 2005 to the 2010 edition.
- A new warning was added for Stiffened Seated connections with HSS columns, in which the length of seat plate exceeds the flat width of the section.
- Other several minor fixes.HOMEPAGE
