RAM Concept's organization of criteria, input, and results through the layer system shown below allows a wealth of information to be organized cleanly for ease of navigation and user interaction.
Three-dimensional view of two-way distributed tendon system in RAM Concept showing line and point loads applied to slab.
Tree structure interface for navigating different input and results windows in RAM Concept. The results within each rule set (service, strength, ductility, etc.) can be investigated in detail.
RAM Concept allows the assignment of a priority value to any slab, beam, or opening in the model. This allows the engineer a simple but powerful means of reconciling overlapping elements within the floor.
Modeling plan layer with user assigned priority value for each element in the floor.
Resulting physical model once meshing has been done. Note the greater thickness of the beam framing from the left side of the column takes priority as it has a larger priority value.
One, two, and three-dimensional plots of virtually any demand, capacity, or response quantity can be drawn on screen.
