Structural Engineering Calculation Software

General Footing Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Analyzes and designs individual spread footings for uniaxial or true biaxial moment
  • Incorporates user-specified factors of safety on sliding and overturning
  • Offers ability to automatically increase allowable soil bearing pressure as a user-specified function of footing width and/or depth below a reference elevation
  • Permits the application of vertical loads, overburden loads, shears, and moments
  • Allows the definition of eccentricity for vertical loads
  • Provides option to automatically calculate footing plan dimensions and thickness
  • Offers option to enter user-specified allowable stress increase factor for soil bearing pressure
  • User defined reinforcing
  • Offers the convenience of fill-in-the-blanks style forms and instantaneous recalculation to facilitate the evaluation of “what-if” scenarios
  • Provides highly efficient results summaries as well as generous detail in the on-screen and printed results
  • Includes rich, 3D graphics that support zoom, pan, and many customizable view options.
