Ram Concept can export Tendon tables and Tendon Points table. It's current functionally lacks the association between the Tendon and Tendon points (we cannot ascertain the physical location of the tendons based on the tables alone). Below workflow and utility leverages the exported DWG file to generate a consolidated table that does provide the physical location of the tendons for further processing downstream.
As a prerequisite:
2. Tendon Tables and Tendon Points table Exported
Place PTPlan.dxf, TendonsTable.txt, TendonPoints.txt in the same directory
Extract contents https://communities.bentley.com/products/ram-staad/m/structural_analysis_and_design_gallery/272710 into above directory.
Launch RamConceptTendons.exe, proceed through the interactive prompt (or directly via command line):
RamConceptTendons.exe PTPlan.dxf TendonPoints.txt Tendons.txt.
When successfully completed a consolidated table is written to out.csv in the same directory. Note that all measurements are to the CGS of strand.
