-Slab-on-Grade DESIGN PROCESS

(a) DWG file imported into ADAPT-SOG.

(b) Imported drawing is converted into structural


components.

(d) Loads are applied on the structure and soil


properties specified.

(c) Post-tensioning tendons are generated.

(e) Finite Element mesh is generated.

(f) Design Strips are generated in two orthogonal directions.

(b) EDGE LIFT

(g) The file is broken into two


separate models to represent both
edge lift and center lift conditions.

(h) Deflection contours from Finite Element Method (FEM)


demonstrate the response of structure for both swell modes.

Calculated Stress

(i) Design Sections are generated


automatically for stress check. Locations,
where stresses do not meet the allowable
values, are shown in red (broken line).

(j) Calculated bending and shear stresses for


each Design Strip can be superimposed on the
allowable stress envelope.

(k) Structural drawings can be either printed directly from


the program or exported to AutoCAD.
