The Structural Products development team is pleased to announce the availability of RAM Structural System 2023 Minor Update 1 (23.00.01.275). This software provides you a complete solution for analysis, design, drafting, and documentation for steel and concrete buildings, foundations, and even individual structural components; all in compliance with your local building codes.
RAM Structural System 2023 Minor Update 1 Release Notes – Release Date: October 2023
New Features and Enhancements:
Point Load Verification
In the analysis of the gravity loads, a check has been added to verify that all point loads have been accounted for and distributed to supporting members. If a point load has not been correctly processed, the program gives a warning that the point load was not applied to supporting members and advises the user to move the point load to a location that is not ambiguous to the program. For example, point loads modeled at the corner of the slab edge are ignored. Those point loads should be relocated to the corner framing. The Manual indicates that the surface loads in the small area between corner columns and the slab corner are ignored (this is a very small load that does not exist in the real structure), but while that is also true for point loads at the corner the Manual does not explicitly state that.
Special Concrete Shear Wall Summary Report
For ACI 318-19 Special Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls additional information for the calculation of Ve and phiVn is now included in the In-Plane Shear Results section of the summary report.
The RAM Structural System is powerful and versatile special purpose software for the analysis and design of building structures. It is useful in the design and analysis of commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. The RAM Structural System includes the following modules: RAM Manager, RAM Modeler, RAM Steel Beam and Column, RAM Frame, RAM Concrete, and RAM Foundation.
