I am happy to inform you that we are currently involved in client beta testing of ADAPT-PT v2010. We have received positive feeback on the new version and will begin the commercial release for all active maintenance and support clients at the end of February. Keep in mind that this is a “rolling” process and as we have done with other releases, Platinum and Gold Support clients will be upgraded first followed by clients with Maintenance-only contracts.
Upgrading to this release will also require that your key be reprogrammed or completely updated (you may need a new key). When we begin the release process you will be sent instructions on how to update the key.
Some of the key features and modifications made are:
-New design codes including: Hong Kong-COP (2007), Chinese GB (2002) and ACI 318-08 (IBC 2009).
-The program is 32 and 64-bit compatible with XP, Vista and Windows 7.
-The default file structure has been changed to include the .adb file and a program name subfolder including all intermediate files.
-The program now reports material quantities for take-offs, etc.
-The program now reports moment capacities both in tabular and graphical formats.
-The program was improved in its calculation of cracked deflections.
-Multiple maitenance improvements/fixes are included. These can be found in the PT log file.
