Webinar | Truss to Baseplate Connections...Plus the Connections and Joints in Between

Connection design is one of the last pieces of the structural engineer’s design process that is still mostly done by hand. The framing and connection design often influence each other. Designs can move beyond fix/pin end conditions and recognize actual joint stiffness. Complex connection analysis is vital to ensure the safety and stability of a structure.

Conquer Complex Connections

Engineers can consider joint stiffness and they can design more than simple shear connections with Bentley’s RAM structural design software suite. RAM helps streamline your structural workflow by automating the design of many complex connections. Easily check specific connections or all connections in groups.

Here's what's included in this OnDemand Webinar:

  • Explore a variety of complex connections
  • Take an in-depth look at end plates, baseplates, and truss connections
  • Learn how to model realistic joint stiffness and reduced member properties that will affect overall building/frame stability
