ADAPT-ABI has been specifically developed for the analysis and design of segmentally constructed bridges, such as balanced cantilever construction. It has been serving the bridge engineers in over sixty countries across the globe. DAPTAB has been used in design of many notable bridges worldwide. ADAPT-ABI is a finite element program which is tailored to perform time dependent analysis of concrete bridges and frames, during the construction phase and after the structure is complete. ABI can investigate the effects of newly placed concrete, creep, shrinkage, relaxation in prestressing over time, aging of concrete, and variation in temperature. Its powerful graphical interface can display moments, shears, stresses and deformations for various stages of construction. The software can handle non prestressed concrete, precast, cast-in place, pre-tensioned or post-tensioned frames and is specifically suited for the design and analysis of balanced cantilever construction, incrementally launched bridges, span-by span construction, and other segmentally built bridges. Other applications include retrofit of concrete frames where new concrete is added, new members are added or existing members are modified; and demolition (reverse construction) of frames. The software also handles composite construction and cable-stayed bridges. The basic module of the software ADAPT-ABI Basic is self-contained and complete.
