FAQ added for ADAPT-PT

Are lateral load results included for one-way shear design in ADAPT-PT?  
Yes, ADAPT-PT considers shear results from all user-defined “Strength” and “Lateral” load combinations.  The program determines the worst-case stress ratio (Vu/PhiVc) at each design section.  Each combination, as referenced above, is evaluated using Section 11.4.1 and 11.4.2 of ACI 318.  The output results (Section 12 of Report Generator) show ONLY the design values associated with the worst-case ratio.  The user can also review results for each individual load combination by reviewing the sub-file, “STRUPRC_det.DAT.”  This file is located in the directory selected by the user where model files are stored.
