What's New in Advance Design America 2016 Moving Load Analysis New - Trucks Restricted to Design Lanes Option This option in the moving load case generator will allow ADA to automatically create the critical truck moving scenarios for the design of interior and/or exterior beam girders as per the CAN/CSA-S6. With the input of the maximum lane spacing, all loaded lanes will have their trucks restricted to their design lane. Increased Number of Design Lanes The number of design lanes has been increased from 5 to a maximum of 8 as per the CAN/CSA S6-14 CL 3.8.2, Table 3.5. Design of Steel Plate Box Girder Bridges New - Concrete Slab on Steel Box Girder Composite Members Perform complete analysis and design with all the required construction stages for composite members composed of concrete deck with steel box girders. The design approach was developed to meet the requirements of CSA/CAN S6. There is also the possibility to define longitudinal stiffeners for these box-girder sections. The shear and bending resistances will be calculated according to S6- 14 CL10.12. New - Structural Member Behaviour Titled “By Selection” the new tool was added is the member characteristic dialogue box to enable users to use finite element plates in analysis and design of a steel plate box girder member. Section Calculator Section Calculator Display and Use with Concrete Members The shape contour used in the section calculator is now exported to ADA and will be used to display the member in 3D. It will also be used by the concrete design engine. 5

What's New in Advance Design America 2016 Calculation Run Time Analysis Time ADA’s algorithm has been improved to decrease the analysis run time for many situations under various conditions and machines (real measures depend on the configuration of user’s machine). Steel Design New - Steel Design according to CAN/CSA S16 The new CAN/CSA S16-2014 has been added (with the exception for the addition of the ductile design – Chapter 27 available in 2016 SP1). Torsion Resistance Torsion resistance factor (Φ) was changed according to S6-06 CL10.5.7. Tower Design New - Steel Design according to CAN/CSA S37 The new CAN/CSA S37-2013 has been added. New - Calculation of Wind Loads To respect Environment Canada wind calculation on towers, ADA now allows the user the possibility to change the value of the exponent in the computation of the height factor. 6

What's New in GRAITEC Advance PowerPack 2016 Steel Tower Design Correction of Slenderness Ratio (KL/r) The slenderness ratio was corrected for back-to-back angles in all the design Codes and Standards. Also, another correction was made for tower structures (S37-13). Wood Design Calculation of Stud Wall Nail Deflection The calculation for the nail deflection (Deflection “en”) in a studded timber wall has been corrected. 7
