For analysis and design of almost any type of structure or structural component complete with
sophisticated design tools to help you with your everyday analysis and design needs. RAM Elements
delivers the industry’s most productive and easy-to-use engineering analysis and design toolkit.
Unparalleled Flexibility from a Single Program
The only structural engineering software system that offers finite element analysis and design plus standalone or integrated design modules all in one low cost, easy-to-use package. ram elements is the only product that offers all of the features you need, such as designing beams and columns, concrete or masonry shear walls, retaining walls, tilt-up walls, continuous beams, footings, trusses — all with one familiar, easy to learn and use graphical interface.
instead of using a stand-alone finite element program for frames, trusses, and other indeterminate structures, and one or more specialty programs or spreadsheets for your everyday design needs, use ram elements for all these tasks. This eliminates learning different programs for steel, concrete, masonry, wood, or cold-formed steel design and purchasing additional special purpose products for retaining walls or tilt-up walls. all the functionality you need is in one low-cost package.
Provides comprehensive Structural Modeling
Finite element analysis and design offerings that can tackle most structural analysis problems. utilized by thousands of engineering firms, ram elements provides unmatched productivity for modeling, optimizing, and designing structural elements and systems.
Dozens of modeling tools are available to make modeling even complex projects quick and easy. For increased flexibility, a user customizable desktop environment is provided so your favorite commands can be a mouse click away. Physical member modeling features allow users to design as engineers, not finite element specialists. The sophisticated design modules for structural elements such as retaining walls or isolated shear walls can be run as integrated with the finite element model or in stand-alone design mode. With our continuous enhancements ram elements provides confidence that our products are up to date with codes revisions.
Quickly design a Single Structural element
Easily design a single structural element such as a tilt-up wall, or utilize its integrated analysis and design capabilities to design these components as part of your 2-D or 3-D finite element model, which will bring all the information into the tilt-up wall design module automatically from the model.
Current design modules include: tilt-up walls, continuous beams, concrete shear walls, masonry walls with openings including lintel and column design, concrete spread footings, and concrete columns with interaction diagrams, trusses and retaining walls.
The tilt-up wall module will assist you in designing and detailing all rebar requirements, perform all the necessary design checks, and produce complete drawings in DXF format along with detailed reports designed to go directly into your structural calculations.
Model quickly and accurately any way you choose using customizable features. ram elements allows you to personalize almost every part of the program to your needs or company standards and rules-of thumb. With 7 different ways to lay out nodes, 5 ways of modeling members, quick shell creation, import options, and plenty of tools to manipulate every object, you can quickly and accurately model to the detail and obtain the expected results. customizable toolbars and personalized model views, display options, and units system are also available.
This allows for templates to be created easily for everyday design structures allowing you to save even more time on every project.
