Manual lateral Loading in Ram Structural System

Hi guys,

Is it possible assign manual lateral loading in Ram Structural System(Ram Frame), like wind load for irregular shape building. At the same time can apply automatic load combination together with the manually lateral load assign.

If can what is the best way?

Thanks in advanced!

  • Could you explain that a little more? I have a steel-framed podium with 3 stories of wood that I'm trying to model, and I need to be able to apply the significant seismic hold-down forces from the wood shearwalls to my moment frame beams below. Like IronMax, I'm not seeing how to apply lateral system loads in the Modeler, or how to get Ram Frame to recognize point loads from Modeler as seismic or wind loads. Thanks.
