As part of ADAPT's ongoing commitment to the global concrete design community and the advancement of the application of pre-stressing technologies, Dr. Bijan Aalami has made educational and practical seminars one of the principal activities of ADAPT over the last twenty-five years. Design engineers in Panama, Singapore, Latvia and Brazil relied on ADAPT software and consulting to successfully establish the practice of unbonded post-tensioning in their countries. Dr. Aalami's qualifications as a Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at San Francisco State University, a registered Structural Engineer in California, and a Chartered Engineer in the United Kingdom, together with ADAPT's extensive design experience worldwide, provides the knowledge base upon which ADAPT seminars are developed.
The primary themes of Building Design seminars offered by ADAPT are:

Post-tensioning Design and Construction -
A two-day educational and practical seminar
With an optional hands-on training workshop
This course is offered in collaboration with Imperial College London's Centre for Professional Development. The course covers developments in post-tensioning design technology, construction practice, economic advantages of post-tensioning and design software tools. The primary lecturer of the course is Dr. Bijan O Aalami, the renowned world leader and teacher in the design of concrete buildings, bridges, and special structures. Additional lecturers include Mr. Robin Whittle and Dr. Florian Aalami. Mr. Whittle is Chairman of the Concrete Society Working Party, which has been responsible for updating the technical design handbook TR 43, "Post-Tensioned Concrete Floors". Dr. Florian Aalami, is a specialist in construction technology and software application.

Two-Day US Workshop Series for
Efficient design of post-tensioned buildings
This workshop series is specifically tailored for those interested in hands-on, in-depth training in 3D-FEM concrete software, modeling procedures and techniques for the design and analysis of post-tensioned buildings. Comprehensive workflows and interactive step-by-step training will be conducted for common structure types including parking garages with post-tensioned girders and one-way slabs, mat/raft soil-supported foundations, two-way elevated slabs and transfer/podium slabs.
Each workshop will offer intensive, start-to-finish instruction of each specific structure type utilizing ADAPT-Builder 2012 software (including ADAPT-Floor Pro, Edge and MAT) in an interactive learning environment. Specific attention will be given to the use and integration of ADAPT's new multistory analysis tool, ADAPT-Edge. Each participant will take home greater in-depth knowledge and understanding of how to practically and efficiently implement the use of these software tools in the design process and develop practical work-flows for project completion.
Day One: Parking Structure with PT Girders and One-Way Conventional Slab / Soil-supported Mat Foundation Design
Day Two: Two-Way Elevated Slab / Two-way Transfer Slab

ADAPT se complace en anunciar el tercer diplomado en Latinoamérica para el 2013. El diplomado es un curso intensivo de 32 horas dictadas durante 4 días y que tiene énfasis en los componentes principales teorico-practicos para que el ingeniero desarrolle la capacidad necesaria para analizar y diseñar estructuras postensadas. El diplomado tiene una alta intensidad en el uso práctico de software a través de ejemplos de diseño.
Al terminar el diplomado, el ingeniero estará en capacidad de:
Los módulos del diplomado son:
Modulo 2. Predimensionamiento, fricción, agrietamiento.
Modulo 3. Análisis y Diseño de un sistema completo de losa postensada.
Modulo 4. Comportamiento de Edificios Postensados en Zonas Sísmicas.
El diplomado se desarrolla usando las herramientas informáticas de ADAPT, las cuales se proporcionaran a los participantes con antelación al inicio del curso. Para participar es necesario que cada asistente traiga al curso su propio laptop con sistema operativo Windows para los talleres de diseño.
Todas las notas técnicas y software de demostración se distribuirán electrónicamente.
$ 900 USD / Participante
