A limitation and workaround has been added for ADAPT-Builder. This involves rebar vertical orientation for base reinforcement when copied or moved to another slab in the same model.
[4/26/10] Calculation of Modulus of Elasticity for AASHTO 2007
For AASHTO 07 the program doesn’t consider user input for unit weight of concrete for calculation of modulus of elasticity. The program is always using the default value. As a workaround the user must overwrite this value (concrete unit weight) by manually modifying the INP file. Go to PROCESS>Edit Input Data>Edit Input Data and modify the following line under “CONCRETE PARAMETERS”:
CONCRETE PARAMETERS N=2
1 M=AASHT07 A=4.00 B=0.85 HM=70.00\
2 M=ACI A=4.000000 B=0.850000 C=1.250000 D=0.118000\
E=1.000000 F=35.00000000 T0=7.00000000 W=0.08680398 ;W is used for calculating modulus of elasticity
The following technial note has been added for ADAPT-ABI 2009:
TN363 – Bridge Design with Moderate Curvature on Plan, Using ADAPT-ABI
The following technical notes have been added to the Floor Pro page:
1. TN362 – Verfication of Design Values Reported by Floor Pro and a comparison with SAFE
2. TN220 – Post-Tensioned Waffle/Joist Slab Construction (updated)
When importing tendons from ADAPT-PT 2010 to ADAPT-Floor Pro 2009, there is one limitation with a known workaround. This has been added to the ADAPT-Floor Pro and ADAPT-PT pages.
A new PT waffle slab example model has been added to the Floor Pro page.
PT2010_Demo Video (rename as .wmv)
TN361 – Basics of Long-Term Deflections has been added to the Floor Pro and PT pages.
A new written MAT tutorial and associated example model has been added to the Floor Pro/MAT page. This tutorial is a project example with use of ADAPT-MAT for a conventionally-reinforced mat foundation slab in US units. We are also producing step-by-step tutorials for ADAPT-MAT with SI, MKS and US units. These will be available in 2 weeks time.
[4/10/10] Compatibility with Windows Vista, Windows 7
ADAPT-PULT and ADAPT-FELT are not compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 OS. However there will be a version very soon which will install and enable to run the program(s) for both 32 bit and 64 bit OS systems.
