Below is all the information you need for Foundation Calculations!

Foundation Calculations

The program can handle slabs with a column or a wall on top.

Foundation Calculations

The adequate geometry and loads are defined. Up to ten different ULS or SLS load cases can be defined. In this case a load case with a vertical force and moments around both axes.

Foundation Calculations

The soil and other data involved in the calculation of the ground pressure capacity are defined, in this case a normally consolidated clay.

Ultimate Limit State

Foundation Calculations

The ground pressure acting on the effective part of the slab is calculated for each load case.

Foundation Calculations

Ultimate Limit State results in terms of ground pressure check, shear check and required bending reinforcement are shown numerically.

Foundation 6

Required bending reinforcement shown graphically.

Foundation Calculations

The punching check is performed at four different control perimeters as well as at the column perimeter. In this case the reinforcement at the column area has to be increased as also seen above at the graphical display.

Foundation 8

Available anchorage lengths are satisfactory and no end hooks has to be used.

Serviceability Limit State

Foundation 9

For load cases in the Serviceability Limit State crack widths are calculated.

Foundation 10

If the crack width is too large a crack width design can be performed. Three different crack criteria’s are available. In this case the allowed crack width is 0.2 mm.

Foundation 11

The reinforcement is increased to produce a crack width of maximum 0.2 mm.


Foundation 12

To calculate settlements the soil is divided in a number of layers.

Foundation 13

And the relevant data is defined for the clay.

Foundation 14

In this case the settlement is sufficient for the SLS load case but not for the ULS load case.

Finally when the results are satisfactory the output can be sent to a printer.
