ADAPT BUILDER SUITE 2012 TM With the added power of ADAPT-Edge ADAPT now offers a One Stop Solution

for Complete Building Analysis


The Power and Flexibility of Detailed Floor, Foundation and Building Design in One Solution
ADAPT-Builder Suite 2012 now offers the option of complete building modeling and analysis with the introduction of its new module ADAPT-Edge. The new building structural analysis module can be used as a stand-alone product or together with ADAPTs specialized design software for floor and foundation systems, Floor Pro and MAT. Structural engineers can use this new product to rapidly create full models of their concrete structures and generate accurate analysis results for gravity or applied lateral loads. ADAPT retains its leadership position as the worlds most preferred provider of 3D FEM based Integrated Slab Design Software. The 2012 Suite includes the following Software options: ADAPT Floor Pro: models multi-level concrete buildings, analyzes and designs individual floor levels one at a time. ADAPT MAT: most comprehensive three-dimensional (3D) Finite Element (FEM) Analysis and Design tool for conventionally reinforced or post-tensioned mat foundations, with or without grade beams ADAPT Edge: allows for the analysis of gravity and lateral loads on an entire concrete building structure from roof to foundation, including automated load takedown. ADAPT SOG: a complete three-dimensional (3D) Finite Element (FEM) Analysis and Design tool for the analysis and design of post-tensioned foundations slabs on expansive soils ADAPT PT Shop: A powerful tool for PT shop drawings.

ADAPT BUILDER SUITE 2012 TM With the added power of ADAPT-Edge


How Builder 2012 addresses your existing concerns
The new Builder Suite eliminates maintaining separate slab /building models Now one model with all up-to-date project information is all that is required Helps in addressing the often time intensive process of estimating loads on MAT foundations or transfer structures. Comprehensively helps in determining effects of post tensioning on overall building response. Ensures coordination of different slab models in one file Addresses the challenge to properly combine forces with detailed gravity slab design. Addresses the problem of designing slabs for differential shortening

New Advancements in Builder 2012:


Advanced Tendon Modeling o Lay out tendons as they will be constructed or use schematic tendon profiles using effective force o Maximize efficiency with automated tendon layout and optimization options o All tendon properties and profiles are viewable and editable, o with clear relation to slab geometry o Force along tendon is clearly shown during modeling Accurate Deflection Calculation o Cracked deflection calculation based on actual disposition of reinforcement and iterative redistribution of moment capacities o Option to design for specific crack width o Reporting of crack width o Long-term deflections considering load history Integrated Modal Vibration Analysis o Floor Pro automatically calculates and reports the vibration response of any concrete floor system/ Factors considered include: o Post- or pre-stressing o Cracking o Contribution of any load case in x,y,z direction Integrated Lateral / Gravity Design: Edge supports an integrated approach for the accurate combination and design of lateral and gravity loads for floor and foundation systems by making the solution of the lateral building analysis available during detailed floor and foundation system design

Key Differentiators of Builder 2012:


Easy To Follow Code Checks o Design results can be checked for each support line Automated P/T Shop Drawing Generation o Tendon Chair Heights Shown in Plan, for easy export to CAD Tendon Quantities and Elongations o Easily extract tendon, rebar and concrete quantities from your design model o Tendon elongation reports provide information needed for installation One-Click Switch: Building & Slab/Mat Automated Load Takedown Effects of PT in Multi-Level Applications o A multi-level analysis automatically takes increasing effect of Hyperstatic (secondary) moments at lower supports of a multi-level post-tensioned structure into consideration Integrated Design of PT Transfer Beams o ADAPT-Builder supports the accurate modeling, analysis and design of posttensioned transfer structures in building applications. Efficient Design of ETABS Slabs o Easily extract model info from ETABS to ADAPT o Geometry o Gravity Loads o Lateral Loads
