The leading analysis program for sections under load

AdSec’s analysis helps design all kinds of sections under load. Working from first principles, software can handle sections made from concrete, steel or fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) sections, or any combinations of these materials.

Analyse sections under load to international codes

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. 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. For uniaxial and biaxial conditions, the software gives analysis options for serviceability and ultimate limit states to national and international design codes.

AdSec offers convenient tools for generating irregular sections and uses simplified parametric input of geometry and reinforcement layout for regularly shaped column and beam sections. Tools then allow users to assemble these into more complex (compound) sections.

Engineers use AdSec to analyse axial loads and bending moments, and to prestress loads using bonded and unbonded tendons. Creep, differential shrinkage and temperature effects can be investigated using applied strains. And users can combine long-term dead loads with short-term imposed loads and derive forces and moments from strains and curvatures.

Used by engineers around the world, AdSec is the leading analysis program for sections under load.

adc

ADC enables users to make the final engineering choice by presenting a list of reinforcement arrangements that meet the detailing and load requirements. 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.

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.
