RAM Connections V8i Everything Needed for Steel Connection Design
RAM Connection provides a comprehensive analysis and design of virtually any connection type. The designs include the tedious seismic code provision requirements. Workflows are optimized with integration of 3D design and detailing models.
RAM Conncections V8i:
Design and optimize any connection type included in the AISC specifications, for both ASD and LRFD.
Connection types include shear and moment connections, braced frame connections, and column and beam splices.
A single connection can be designed. Duplication of effort and errors can be minimized with the integration of 3D design and detailing models.
Utilize your RAM Structural System, RAM Elements, and RAM Connections V8i design models with RAM Connection for seamless connection design of your entire structure.
Modeling Model any of the following connection types on your analytical model:
Beam-Column (Flange or Web)
Beam and Column Splices
Gusset Plates for Bracing Connections
Control over dozens of design parameters:
Welds (size, material, length, etc.)
Bolt (size, material, hole type, etc.)
Doublers and stiffeners dimensions
Design per ANSI/AISC 360-05 (LRFD or ASD)
ANSI/AISC 341-05 Seismic Provisions for Moment and Braced Frames
ANSI/AISC 358-05 Prequalified Moment Connections
ACI 318-08 Appendix D for anchors
Design your structures in conformance with BS codes as per BS 5950 and the latest AISC 360-05 (unified) code.
Advance Dynamics Option:
Utilize additional advanced dynamic features in STAAD.Pro V8i (typically used in industrial structures) such as steady-state analysis and modal analysis including stress stiffening effects.
Design all your connections including splices, shear and moment connections, and complicated vertical-bracing connections using RAM Connection directly integrated within the STAAD.Pro V8i environment.
Group connections together to apply company standards for certain connection types.
View the connections in 3D as well as the final 2D plan detailed drawings directly in STAAD.Pro V8i
