What is RAM Concept:

RAM Concept software is the most commonly used finite element program for Reinforced and Post Tensioned slab design throughout Australia. RAM Concept is a very powerful tool with a lot of analysis and design capabilities, giving user the full control to evaluate and comprehend the model. It can be overwhelming when you start using RAM, and if you don’t model it right, don’t expect to get right results. It is critical you understand what are you doing, as the program will give you output based on your input.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn the analysis and design process in RAM Concept by going through the steps for an actual project
  • Attain principle knowledge of using RAM Concept, from modeling to assigning design parameters and reading results
  • Understand how to apply relevant part of concrete design code (AS3600) when using RAM Concept software

Course Outline:

  • Introduction to RAM concept and PT Slabs
  • Define Design Strip Properties and create them from BMD
  • Define Punching Shear Parameters and Assign Loading
