FAQ added for ADAPT-Floor Pro 2010/2009

How is serviceability reinforcement calculated for prestressed beams in ADAPT-Floor Pro?
Where beams are present in Floor Pro PT, the program uses 0.004*Act (ACI318 Section 18.9.2).  The program will internally calculate the effective flange based on the minimum of (a)0.25*span length, and (b)16*h + b where ‘h’ is the slab thickness and ‘b’ is the width of beam stem.  Section properties related to the effective width are used in calculating the centroid of section for Act.
