RAM Concept

Concrete Slab Design Software

Economically design post-tensioned and reinforced concrete floors including slabs, mats, and rafts, with exceptional visibility into compliance, efficiency, and practicality. Design floors and foundations reliably and efficiently, saving time and money, and overcoming the most common concerns you face as a designer. RAM Concept allows you to easily design complex floor geometries and incorporate changes with ease using powerful task automation and clearly organized output.

Capabilities

Capture the time-varying properties of concrete in your analysis. Account for creep, shrinkage, and cracking at various time stages in the analysis, accurately predicting deflections with consideration for how concrete truly behaves.

Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including conditions induced by gravity like dead and live loads, such as skip conditions and tilt-up walls, in combination with lateral loads like wind and seismic.

Calculate and design concrete slab/column connections for punching shear, including the effects of unbalanced joint moments.

Complete building analysis, design, and drafting for the entire structure accurately and efficiently using our state-of-the-art finite element analysis. Reduce or eliminate the time spent waiting for results using our fast solvers.

Design a wide variety of foundations, from simple spread footings to complicated mats and specialized machinery pads. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of international standards.

Design elevated concrete slabs with or without post-tensioning. Consider all major aspects of slab design including service, ductility, and strength limit states, code-prescribed requirements, long-term deflections, punching shear, and walking vibration.

Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.

Model, analyze, and design with intuitive applications tailored especially to the needs of building structures. Quickly obtain comprehensive and thorough designs that conform to international building code requirements.

Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronize changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.
