Spread Footing – Design and verification of spread footings ( 4.00 KB )

This program for the design of spread footings subject to general loading. It computes bearing capacity, settlement and rotation of a footing, and determines required longitudinal and shear reinforcement.

Main features

  • Analyses are based on a large number of theories (EC2, PN, IS, Brinch-Hansen)
  • Various theories of settlement analysis (Janbu, Buisman, Soft soil, using index and coefficient of compression, secondary settlement according to Lade)
  • Verification analysis can be performed employing EN 1997-1, LRFD or classical approach (limit states, factor of safety)
  • EN 1997 – option to choose partial fctors based on National Annexes
  • EN 1997 – option to choose all design approaches, consider design situations
  • Design of reinforced concrete according to EN 1992 (EC2), BS, PN, IS, ACI
  • Shapes of foundation - centric, eccentric, strip footing, circular, stepped centric, stepped eccentric, stepped circular
  • Automatic design of foundation
  • Generally layered soil environment
  • Built-in database of soil parameters
  • Arbitrary number of load cases
  • Partial results - excentricity by load cases
  • Modelling of water
  • Modelling of sand-gravel cushion
  • Analysis of foundations on drained, undrained or rock subsoil
  • Footing with fillet, stepped and circular footing
  • Inclined shape of grouted slope
  • Inclined footing bottom
  • General shape of stress diagram under the footing due to combined bending and tension/compression
  • Settlement analysis exploiting the oedometric modulus specified by the oedometric loading curve
