RAM Frame users continue your learning on the design of lateral steel members. Last week we looked at Generating Lateral Loads and this week we continue with the “Specifying Rigid, Semirigid, and Pseudo-Flexible Diaphragms” course.
With RAM Frame you can save time by accurately generating lateral loads and then distributing those loads to the vertical lateral force resisting system based upon the diaphragm type specified – rigid, semi-rigid, or pseudo-flexible.
Take advantage of RAM Frame’s ability to distribute lateral loads considering the relative stiffness of each frame and stiffness in the calculation or manually defined percentages to each frame.
