A summary of new features includes:
New Release - ADAPT-PT/RC 2014
January, 2014: ADAPT-PT/RC 2014 combines the popular products ADAPT-PT and ADAPT-RC into one product. It is a highly efficient, reliable, fast, and easy-to-use software for the analysis, design, and investigation of any concrete project. It supports concrete beams, pan joist, one-way and two-way slabs systems - for conventionally reinforced (RC) and/or post-tensioned (PT) projects.
The product was developed in response to our clients' request to have a complete solution for any of their 2D frame analysis and design projects. Beyond offering the flexibility of designing both RC and PT projects, this new release includes improvements in the modeling workflow, advanced analysis capabilities, expanded DWF output, and greater reporting options.
