Post-Tensioned Buildings Workshop - Beyond the Basics - US Cities:
Regional ADAPT Software Training Workshops in USA
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:
A sampling of past seminar and workshop locations include:
Ongoing educational and practical seminar series in collaboration with other educational institutes and professional organizations
Like previous years, 2014 promises to be a year packed with seminars and training courses offered by ADAPT on design and construction of post-tensioned buildings, concrete structures and segmentally constructed bridges. Refer to the schedule below to find an event near you. We are continually adding new locations worldwide and will post them on this web site as detailed information becomes available.

ADAPT se complace en anunciar el primer taller intensivo de dos días en Latinoamérica. El taller tiene una duración de 16 horas dictadas durante 2 días enfocados a procedimientos de modelación y técnicas para el diseño de edificios postensados. El ingeniero desarrollara la capacidad necesaria para analizar y diseñar estructuras postensadas usando software 3D de elementos finitos a través de ejemplos de diseño. El taller ofrece instrucción de comienzo a final de diversas tipologías estructurales incluyendo: Estacionamientos, Edificios apoyados en losas de cimentación. Losas en dos direcciones y sistemas con elementos de transferencia, usando ADAPT Edge, ADAPT Floor Pro y ADAPT MAT.
Objetivos - Al terminar el diplomado, el ingeniero estará en capacidad de:
Se realizan tres ejemplos prácticos:
Ejemplo 2. Adición de losa de cimentación al ejemplo anterior y su correspondiente diseño.
Ejemplo 3. Edificio con losas elevadas en dos direcciones.
El taller se desarrolla usando las herramientas informáticas de ADAPT, las cuales se proporcionaran a los participantes con antelación al inicio del curso, cada participante debe traer su propio laptop e instalar el software con anticipación al inicio del curso, en caso de tener su propia licencia favor traerla al taller.
Todas las notas técnicas y software de demostración se distribuirán electrónicamente.
El taller tiene un costo de $600 USD/participante, e incluye coffee breaks (2 por día) y almuerzo, dos o más ingenieros de la misma firma tendrá un costo de $540 USD/pna.
