ADAPT EDGE 2012 โปรแกรมวิเคราะห์ออกแบบโครงสร้างอาคารคอนกรีตเสริมเหล็ก (และคอนกรีตอัดแรง) 3 มิติ


ADAPT Edge โปรแกรมนวัตกรรมของโลกด้านการวิเคราะห์และออกแบบโครงสร้างอาคาร จากเดิมวิศวกรต้องใช้อย่างน้อย 2 โปรแกรมในการออกแบบอาคาร คือ วิเคราะห์ออกแบบโครงสร้างอาคารด้วยอีกโปรแกรม เพื่อให้ได้ เสา คาน พื้นคอนกรีตเสริมเหล็ก แล้ว ก็ต้องมาทำการวิเคราะห์แก้ไขพื้นเป็นคอนกรีตอัดแรง
(Post-Tensioning) เองอีกครั้ง 


โปรแกรม ADAPT Edge เป็นโปรแกรมแรกของโลกที่พัฒนาขึ้นมาจากโปรแกรม ADAPT Floor Pro ที่ต้องออกแบบทีละชั้น ให้สามารถออกแบบครั้งเดียวได้ทั้งอาคารหลายชั้น เพื่อลดการทำงานซ้ำซ้อน เพิ่มประสิทธิภาพในการทำงานให้กับวิศวกรโครงสร้าง ต้นทุนการออกแบบลดลง และ ลดเวลาในการออกแบบอาคารลง

Edge automatically accounts for the composite interaction of all vertical and horizontal elements including differential shortening and secondary effects of post-tensioning, if present. Edge offers a truly integrated approach to the modeling, analysis and design of concrete structures. We invite you to take the challenge and experience for yourself how Edge can speed up your concrete building design process.









     • Any single or multilevel concrete structure

     • Simple or very complex geometries

     • Quick stability analysis of mid-rise buildings

     • Load takedown for transfer elements or mat foundations

     • Calculation of differential settlement for tall buildings

     • Determine impact of post-tensioning or prestressing on all members of a building

     • Accurate combination of lateral loads in slab and mat design

     • Analyze effect of complex slab systems on lateral stability of buildings

     • Vibration analysis of concrete buildings


Top Reasons to Use Edge


     • Speed - very easy and fast modeling of concrete buildings

     • Post-Tensioning - models post-tensioning in buiding models

     • Ease of Use - no fuss, but accurate automated 3D finite element meshing and analysis

     • Integration - building stability analysis, detailed floor and foundation design in one integrated


     • Accuracy - floor system's bending response accurately tied into overall building solution

     Structural Modeling

            Generates a true 3D solid physical model of an entire floor system or complete concrete


                    •  No simplification of geometry or manual creation of analytic model required

                    •  Uses smart components to assemble an entire floor system: slab regions, walls,

                       beams, columns, drop caps, drop panels, rebar, tendons and openings

                    •  Models steps above and below the slab as well as any type of slab depression

            Streamline modeling process by importing DWG/DXF files and intelligently converting to

              structural components

            One-click switches between single- and multi-level modeling modes

            Coordinated multi-level modeling saves time and reduces errors

            Ability to copy levels up or down to speed up modeling

            Flexible definition of component releases and boundary conditions

            Handles complex models withe ease and accuracy

            Models can be supported on columns, walls, point supports, line supports, or any

              configuration of springs (point, line or area representing soil)

            View and examine 3D rendered solid model to verify the accuracy of the structure's




            Apply gravity or lateral loads of any configuration, anywhere on the model

            Wind load wizard

                    •  A practical utility that allows users to quickly calculate and apply wind loads to

                       the structure. Uses code specified formulas or user defined wind pressure profile.

                       Wizard automatically calculates structure's exposure surface and applies loads

                       at windward and leeward faces of structure.

                    •  ASCE 7-10

                    •  IS 875 (Part III)

            Seismic load wizard is being released December 2012

            Building level internal reactions are available for single-level re-analysis


     Post-Tensioning and Prestressing

            Uses integrated tendon modeling as opposed to "balanced loading". This overcomes

              many of the approximations and shortcomings inherent in the conventional modeling

              of post-tensioning. Ask ADAPT to email you a technical note on its modeling approach

              [Aalami, Bijan, O "Structural Modeling of Post-Tensioned Members." American

              Society of Civil Engineers, Structural Journal, February 2000, pp. 157-162]

            Model bonded or unbonded tendons

            Design using effective force or specify stressing ends and friction loss parameters

            Calculates prestressing force in members as well as secondary restraining effects

              (hyperstatic moments) due to prestressing

            Tendon generation wizards for banded and distributed tendons

            Automatically or manually model and dynamically edit tendons in plan or elevation

              view online video ...

            Tendon curvature check against a minimum radius of curvature

            Automated tendon clash detection

            Program calculates and graphically shows force along tendon


     Analysis Capabilities

            Industry leading automated 3D finite element meshing algorithm

            Option to mesh and analyze complete model or any individual level

            Performs a detailed finite element analysis of the entire floor systems and its supporting

              structure using shell and frame elements

            Unlike other general analysis programs in the market that analyze all horizontal

              components at the same node level, Edge properly maintains the different offsets of

              steps in slabs and/or beams with respect to the slab they are framed into - this results

              in more realistic analysis and deflection results

            Smart components automatically establish required FEM connectivity, eliminating

              need for manual fine-tuning of analysis model

            Carries out integrated modal vibration analysis on complete model or any user-defined



     Design and Automatic Code Checks

            Member design forces for columns and walls reported graphically and concise

              tabular reports

            Automatic drift check

            Define arbitrary manual design sections across horizontal components - software

              calculates actions, required rebar and moment capacity

            When used with Floor Pro or MAT, automatically combines gravity analysis results

              carried out at slab level with lateral load solution obtained at building level


     Output and Reports

            Detailed quantity takeoff report

            Generates both professional and ready-to-submit graphical and tabular reports


     Licensing Options

            Edge can be used as a stand-alone solution or or together with Floor Pro and MAT

            Multi-user network or stand-alone versions

            Download with soft license or flexible USB dongle
