IES QuickFooting v2.0 [Size: 14 MB] ... What will QuickFooting do for you?: Concrete spread footing (single column pad), imports from VisualAnalysis. Design and check reinforced concrete footings under a single column without building a complex analysis model of the building.

Key benefits
    Will check several footings all at once (for worst case).
    Automatic sizing and detailing (optional).
    Advanced handling of biaxial loading
    Offset pedestal from footing center
    Checks footing, pedestal, and interface.
    Stability checks: Bearing pressure (net & gross), overturning, sliding, and uplift.
    Complete units flexibility.
    Accurate calculation of bearing pressure under biaxial loading.

Supported Codes
    ACI 318-11
    IBC 2012
    ASCE 7-10 (Load Combinations)
    Canadian CSA A23.3-04

Basic Capabilities
    Design or check single-column spread footings made of reinforced concrete
    Column may be eccentric on footing
    Calculation of bearing pressure under biaxial loading
    Optional rectangular pedestal, offset from center
    Checks several footings all at once (design for worst case) with multiple 'load sets'
    Multiple footings in a single project file

Stability Checks
    Checks bearing pressure, overturning, sliding, and uplift
    Maximum allowable bearing pressure can be gross or net
    Specify a passive resistance from the adjacent soil for sliding
    Specify the coefficient of friction between the footing and soil
    Specify an additional downward force to resist uplift

Strength Checks
    Footing
        Flexure
        One-way shear
        Punching shear
        Minimum steel
        Minimum strain
    Footing-Pedestal Interface
        Bearing on footing
        Bearing on pedestal
        Dowel development into footing
        Dowel development into pedestal
        Dowel tensile capacity
        Minimum steel across joint
    Pedestal
        Shear
        Axial
        Axial-bending interaction
        Biaxial bending

Loading
    Load sets from more than one column (design for worst-case)
    Axial force, moments in both directions, shears in both directions, and overburden
    Allows pre-factored loads, such as from a metal-building design report
    Load combinations from IBC, CBC, or custom
    Uplift loads
    Import and Export loads (text)
    Import reactions from a VisualAnalysis model

Reporting
    Excellent 'transparent' report shows all checks and code references
    Full-color reporting for a professional look and easy reading
    Detailed design sketch
    Echo of input data
    Extremely customizable, from a summary to full-calculation details

Limitations
    Only rectangular footings are supported
    Only a single column (no combined or wall footings)
    No support for plain (unreinforced) footings
    No top-steel checks
    Only rectangular pedestals (optional)
    Only rectangular rebar patterns
    No calculation of rotational stiffness or deflections.
