Bentley’s RAM Advanse becomes RAM Elements
Bentley Systems has announced the immediate availability of RAM Elements version 10.0, the newest release of Bentley’s structural engineering application formerly known as RAM Advanse. The software’s new name reflects its capabilities, which include a powerful 3D finite element method and toolset of commonly used engineering tasks for the analysis and design of almost any type of structure or structural component.
According to Bentley, beginning with this release, RAM Elements features a simpler and more productive graphical user interface (GUI) that efficiently organises available user options. Santanu Das, Bentley vice president, structural engineering group, said: “For more than a decade, Bentley’s RAM Advanse, which we have just renamed RAM Elements, has been providing thousands of structural engineers around the world with unmatched productivity for modeling, optimizing, and designing structural elements and systems ranging from trusses, continuous beams, frames of all types, retaining walls, and masonry walls to tilt-up walls, shear walls, metal buildings, and cold-formed structures or footings.”
