ADAPT or POSTEN ??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For the last few years, my practice has mostly been bridge design.  However, every now and then, a significant building project comes along.  This is one of those times.  By the end of the year, my staff will start designing two building projects with a total of more than 40 floors.  Most of the floors will likely be post-tensioned concrete construction.  Both projects are located in Texas, well away from the Gulf Coast, so seismic and wind are not anticipated to be major issues.
 
The last time we maintained licenses on P/T software was back in the days of DOS.  I assume that the two leading options today are the same that they were back then, ADAPT and POSTEN. 
 
From recent hands-on experience, do any of you have recommendations on either of these programs?
 
Are there any other reasonable options that I am not yet aware of? 
 
Thank you in advance for sharing your wisdom on this subject.
 
Best regards,
