Can stress diagrams been viewed for moving load combinations and envelopes in ADAPT-ABI 2009?
Yes, when you go to Post-construction phases of results and select any combination, case or envelope including moving loads, you need to turn on the “Max” or “Min” tab in order to view the stress diagrams.
Can steel sections be modeled in ADAPT-ABI 2009?
ADAPT-ABI allows you to model generic material properties in which the modulus and name can be defined as below:
GENERIC PROPERTIES N=1
Note that the properties do not include the unit weight of the generic material so the user will have to manually apply this loading to the structure.
