3. AISC tubular truss connection classification enhancements. Now users have different options to handle the Mro chord moment that can be designed for the K, X or prorated when the joint is clasiffied in several connections.

4. Steel materials enhancement to use materials with several Fy and Fu values depending on the thickness. Several design codes allow the use for a given material, different values of Fy and Fu depending on the thickness. These design codes when using a material like ASTM that only have one value for Fy and Fu were not providing the values expected. Now, the values of Fy and Fu depend on the material, if a design code uses values depending on the thickness and the material has them then these will be used and material with only on value of Fy and Fu will user these values correctly.

5. EN 1993 base plates update to use EN 1992-4: 2018. The design of fastening to concrete was updated from the EN 1992-4: 2013 (draft) to the official relesed specification EN 1992-4: 2018.
RAM Connection is the ideal solution when structural engineers or designers need to check a specific connection, design a single connection for multiple joints, or optimize each connection in a structure. Analyze, design, and verify structural steel connections, all with comprehensive calculations, including seismic compliance. RAM Connection can check or design connections in seconds. Whether you design connections or need to check connections designed by the shop, RAM Connection is the software for you. In just one low-cost package, you get for steel frame connections the AISC ASD and LRFD, AS 4100-1998, BS5950-1, CSA S16-14, EN1993-EC3, GB50017 and IS800 connection design and optimization for shear and moment connections, braced frame connections, splices, and horizontal bracing connections. For truss connections you get the tubular connections design according to the AISC and the HSS Connection Design Manual. Through its seamless integration with the RAM Structural System, RAM Elements, and STAAD.Pro, RAM Connection raises the bar to a new level of productivity. All data regarding member sizes, joint geometry, and forces are transferred directly from either the RAM Structural System, RAM Elements, or STAAD.Pro to RAM Connection.
Producing an optimized steel connection design ensures cost-efficient projects without sacrificing quality. Watch Structural Product Expert, Carlos Perez, to learn how you can quickly optimize your steel connections designs as well as produce reports and drawings.
