AD.2007-1001.5.1 RAM Connection Design Mode
There is now a new mode in STAAD.Pro to dynamically link structural model data, including section properties and analysis results, to the RAM Connection application to check connection designs for code compliance. The resulting data and diagrams of the connection can also be included in the User Report.
Connections are designed in the RAM Connection Mode by creating ‘Joints’, from the geometry, section properties and forces resulting from the analysis and assigning a ‘Design Brief’ of connection templates from which a suitable connection, where available, is reported.
Refer to the D. Connection Design workflow for current details on this feature.
