ADAPT-MAT

Reinforced Concrete and Post-Tensioned Foundation Design Software.



ADAPT-MAT is the most comprehensive three-dimensional (3D) Finite Element (FEM) Analysis and Design tool for Conventionally Reinforced or Post-Tensioned Mat Foundations, with or without Grade Beams. Using ADAPT's intuitive and easy-to-use Component Technology, it is the only solution available that also calculates the required reinforcement at all locations of the foundation for you automatically. Using an adaptive meshing and finite the program analyzes the mat and determines the location, amount and length of all the reinforcement needed by computation. Where applicable, under horizontal loading or moments, the program accounts for the separation of a mat from the soil.

ADAPT-Builder 2012 Introduces Multi-Story Structural Analysis Option

Anticipated release May, 2012: Click here to read about ADAPT-Edge , our new structural analysis solution for full concrete buildings. ADAPT-Edge works as a stand-alone product or integrated with ADAPT-MAT, offering the only fully integrated solution capable of detailed foundation system design and building structural analysis.


ADAPT-MAT Features:

  • Generates a true three-dimensional solid model of the entire mat foundation and grade beams using its in-built Builder-Modeler
  • Handles multiple foundation soil properties below the same mat
  • Models steps above and below the mat slab and grade beams
  • View and examine the solid model to verify the accuracy of the structure's representation
  • Performs a detailed finite element analysis of the entire foundation system and its supporting structure using automatic adaptive meshing, flat shell and frame elements
  • Performs code check and reports the location and amount and length of reinforcement needed

Applications

  • MAT foundations for steel or concrete buildings
  • Pile supported foundations
  • Spread footings
  • Grade beams
  • Tower foundations (transmission or wind turbine)
  • Tank foundations
  • Industrial (Machinery foundations)
