About This Software

Structural design software for analysing and designing reinforced concrete beams, slabs and columns

ADC is the ultimate beam design software for concrete column design. Using this column design software you can analyse and design 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.

Column Design in ADC

 

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. This structural design software is easy to use and is ideal for both building and foundation designers.

Quick Overview

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.

Features

  • 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.

Column Design

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.
