Design to EC2, BS8110, Hong Kong, ACI 318, AS3600 and IS 456 design codes
Wizards to guide you in setting up the model
Work in a variety of units, whether preset SI, kN-m, kip-ft or kip-in unit sets, or specify them individually for each component
Use standard steel and concrete material grades and rebar or define your own
ADC checks the reinforcement detailing to ensure that the design is code-compliant and buildable
ADC offers the following construction options: column, beam, solid slab, and ribbed slab design.
Beam and Slab Design
ADC analyses and designs multi-span beams and slabs. The sub-frame model can include connecting columns. It automatically applied patched loads to work out the worst moment and shear envelopes. ADC can also redistribute the moments to maximise efficiency of the section. The end result is a fully reinforced beam or slab that takes detailing and span/effective depth checks into account.
ADC also analyses and designs square and circular columns and piles for axial loads and end moments, including automatically calculated eccentricity effects. ADC gives you a list of reinforcement arrangements that meet the detailing and load requirements, allowing you to make the final engineering choice.
