RAM Elements 3D Software

  • Webinar Recorded February 9, 2012: This webinar presents an overview of Bentley System’s RAM Elements software, a 2D/3D whole building, finite element analysis of loadbearing masonry structures. The software uses a whole building approach – not just the analysis of individual components. It includes strength design per the 2008 MSJC/2009 IBC and allowable stress design per the 2011 MSJC and 2012 IBC. To view the 1 hour recording click here. The International Masonry Institute has developed and published the new manual HERE to serve as a guide show engineers how to use RAM Elements for designing masonry efficiently and effectively. It presents, in a brief and graphic style, the options offered for masonry engineering using RAM Elements.
