ADAPT-EdgeTM with Integrated Wall Design

Automated Design and Code Check of Walls using Tributary and/or Finite Element Loads
Streamline your concrete building design process by using ADAPT-Edge 2017’s integrated wall design option.
Load walls using ADAPT’s patented geometry-based tributary load takedown module, 3D Finite Element
solution, or the envelope. This wall design module seamlessly delivers unparalleled automated design and
code check options within the Builder environment. Detailed wall section properties are defined as Piers,
simplifying the management of walls in your large building models, including combined wall groups. As part of
an integrated design workflow, walls in Edge can be designed for any combination of gravity or lateral loads
solution sets. For projects with post-tensioned slabs, the secondary post-tensioning forces are automatically
included in the wall design loads. Live loads can be reduced using the results of the tributary area module.
Wall design results are presented in schedule format and exported as XLS tables.
