Featured LEARN Course: Modeling Steel Buildings

Users of Bentley’s RAM software wanting to learn techniques for modeling steel buildings will want to take advantage of Bentley’s training course, “Modeling Steel Buildings”. In this course, you will learn to use the modeling tools available in RAM Modeler that allow you to create a realistic steel building structure model that will accurately predict the structural behavior once it is loaded, analyzed, and designed. Learn how to:

  • Generate steel beams and columns in the RAM Manager

  • Create floor layouts, story data and grid systems to accurately model a three-dimensional steel building structure in the RAM Modeler.

  • Quickly model standard and hanging steel columns using the structural grid — modeling steel columns at the exact location as the true building structure.

  • Utilize multiple techniques to model composite and noncomposite steel beams and cantilevers.

For Bentley STAAD users we recommend the “Modeling Beams, Columns, and Braces” course.
