ADAPT-SOG : Post-Tensioned Slab-on-Grade Foundation 3D FEM Design Software
ADAPT-SOG is a complete three-dimensional (3D) Finite Element (FEM) Analysis and Design tool for the analysis and design of post-tensioned foundations slabs on expansive soils.
ADAPT-SOG produces effective, accurate designs with confidence. Other design approaches for post-tension slab-on-grade foundations rely on simplified and approximate methods which largely lead to overly conservative designs. ADAPT-SOG differs by providing an accurate 3D Finite Element Analysis. Unparalleled modeling flexibility allows you to model any foundation configuration, including grade beams, piers, and ribs, as well as plan irregularities, steps in the slab, and varying soil properties. Gravity and Lateral loading can be applied at any location on the slab. Simple modeling tools support the layout of post-tensioning tendons as they will be constructed. The software analyzes the slab and automatically checks allowable stress limits at critical locations. Engineers and lawyers count on ADAPT-SOG to ensure investigative evaluation reports are professional and clear, with sophisticated results output, including deflection contours, graphic displays of soil pressures and concrete stresses. ADAPT-SOG automatically generates post-tension tendon layout drawings for use in construction documents including tendon elongations and drapes.
ADAPT-SOG enables the designer to consistently provide efficient designs in challenging sites with the confidence that the slabs will perform significantly better than designs from other approaches, reducing risk in potential litigation.
