-MODELER/-PT DESIGN PROCESS

(a) DWG file is imported into ADAPT-Modeler.



















(c) Loads are applied on the structure and load
combinations are created.

(b) Imported drawing is converted into structural
components.































(e) ADAPT-Modeler automatically generates Design Strips
(tributaries) for each user-defined Support Line.

(d) Support Lines are generated in two orthogonal directions.





0

(f) Design Strips are exported to ADAPT-PT.

(g) All the information required to make an ADAPT-PT run
is already entered in the Input Editor, and the program is
ready to calculate.


(h) The program finds a Post-Tensioning
Solution based on the design parameters entered
by the user. In the Recycling Screen, the user can
quickly adjust the provided tendon profile or force to
refine the solution.

(i) The user can also find a solution by defining
the number of tendons and their position
along the support line.


(j) Calculated stresses along the Design Strip are
displayed against the background of the allowable
stress envelope.
