Featured LEARN Course: Modeling Lateral Systems

Users of Bentley’s RAM Modeler software wanting to learn specific techniques for modeling building structures may be interested in “Modeling Lateral Systems”. In this course, you will learn to apply RAM Modeler’s graphical user interface to quickly model lateral beams, columns, walls, and braces.

  • Ensure that the vertical lateral force resisting system is created to provide a complete lateral load path from the top of the structure to the base.
  • Assign properties to the lateral members (such as member end fixity and lateral wall openings) to ensure that the steel design and the distribution of lateral loads will be performed accurately.
  • Utilize the Data Check command in the RAM Modeler to ensure that the model is correct and ready for design.
