Make designing composite steel beams a snap

RAM SBeam is an easy-to-use, composite steel beam design application that considers skip loading, unbraced bending segment, partial composite and construction constraints to produce the optimal composite beam designs.

RAM SBeam supports the design standards of AISC 360, CAN/CSA S16, BS5950, Eurocode, and AS 4100. Using one of several design codes, RAM SBeam can select the optimum beam size or check the adequacy of existing construction. RAM SBeam helps you save time by providing rapid evaluation and comparison between various beams under various load conditions, while providing a more economical design for your client.
