RAM Connection V8i can used as a standalone tool for the design of a wide variety of steel connections. Bentley Application Engineer, Kim Olson, demonstrates how to design a simple shear connection as well as a lateral connection in this brief video.
RAM Connection is also available for the design of the same wide variety of connections from within RAM Elements V8i. In this video, Kim demonstrates a moment connection in a simple RAM Elements model.
RAM Connection can be used to open a RAM Structural System file to design the steel connections. In this video, Kim demonstrates how to to design the connections for a floor level and a braced frame in the RSS model.
Connection design integrates into STAAD.Pro though the RAM Connection mode, available for an analyzed steel model. In this video, Kim demonstrates using the how to provide the required load & material data to set up connection design and how to design an individual connection.
