Structural Engineering Calculation Software

Pole Footing Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Analyzes a pole footing embedded in soil and returns the minimum required embedment depth or the resulting pressures based on a user-specified embedment depth
  • Evaluates round or square poles
  • Provides option to consider restraint at ground surface
  • Offers two options to limit the maximum allowable lateral bearing pressure
  • Permits the application of lateral concentrated loads, lateral distributed loads, applied moments, and vertical loads
  • 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.
