ADC

Easily analyse and design reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns

ADC makes analysing and designing columns, beams, solid slabs and ribbed slabs straightforward, working to EC2, BS8110 and Hong Kong design codes. It also checks the reinforcement detailing to ensure that the design is code-compliant and buildable.

Structural elements and sub-frames made simple

ADC analyses and designs multi-span beams and slabs, including connecting columns. The program automatically applies patched loads to work out the worst moment and shear envelopes. It can also redistribute the moments to maximise efficiency of the section. The result is a fully reinforced beam or slab design that takes detailing, as well as span and effective depth checks, into account.

The program also analyses and designs rectangular and circular columns for axial loads and moments, including automatically calculating eccentricity effects. ADC enables users to make the final engineering choice by presenting a list of reinforcement arrangements that meet the detailing and load requirements.

Wizards help users set up models and graphics give clear visual feedback on the resulting bar layouts.

The ability for users to work with standard steel and concrete material grades and rebar or define their own makes ADC flexible as well as straightforward. ADC is easy to use and is ideal for both building and foundation designers.

AdSec

AdSec is also invaluable for refurbishment projects, enabling engineers to calculate the capacity of existing beams and columns, then telling them how much improvement they can achieve from bonded carbon fibre plates and other improvements. AdSec is ideal for tasks such as analysing a bridge beam for cracking under load, designing a composite mega column, checking a pre-stressed floor or finding the capacity of a pile.

alp

The software models soil shear failure and non-linear soil behaviour, calculating deflection down the pile together with moments and shear forces within the pile. Designed with busy engineers in mind, Alp is already used to analyse the soil structure interaction of laterally-loaded piles on projects around the world. When it comes to analysing laterally-loaded piles, Alp makes things simple.

CADrebar

Easy to learn and use, the program provides fast concrete detailing and scheduling, supporting the BS8666:2005 British Standard. This software puts users in control of concrete detailing with single or multiple bar placements on all commands. The program produces industry standard schedules and enables users to create and schedule custom bar types.

Compos

The software does everything an engineer needs to analyse and design composite steel beams at construction and final stages — including automatically selecting beams and studs. From handling variable slab widths and thicknesses to calculating the response factor from footfall-induced vibration, Compos is a powerful tool.
