[Size: 62 MB] ... ASDIP FOUNDATION is structural engineering software utilized by engineers for design of foundations, such as spread footings, strap footings, and combined footings. ASDIP FOUNDATION substantially simplifies time-consuming calculations for structural engineering design. Spread Footing Design: This structural engineering software computes soil bearing pressures induced by a square or rectangular spread concrete footing subject to vertical load and biaxial moment. This structural engineering software analyzes stability of structures for overturning, sliding, and uplift. The software performs concrete design based upon Ultimate Strength Design Method within ACI 318. Load combinations occur per ASCE 7. Columns may be eccentric in two directions. The footing is assumed to be perfectly rigid with constant thickness and rotates about its mass center to maintain equilibrium of forces. A remarkable feature of the ASDIP FOUNDATION software is its ability to determine the soil pressures under the footing with any service load combination including uplift loading. The pressures may also be calculated when only a part of the footing is in contact with soil (partial bearing). These type software advantages are especially useful when a footing with small vertical load and big moments is designed such as a footing at the corner of a building under lateral loads. Input: The required input data includes the footing and column dimensions, materials’ properties, allowable soil bearing pressure, and acting service and factored loads. In addition, the software accepts a number of load cases, such as dead, live, snow, wind, and seismic to be combined internally. Model a single set of pre-combined loads. Output: The program checks the footing stability in overturning, sliding and uplift for the service combined loads, and performs the concrete design, which includes the one-way shear, punching shear and bending for the factored combined loads. In each case the controlling load combination is identified and reported. In case of partial bearing, the software accurately calculates the bearing pressure distribution on the base of the footing. The one-way shear, the punching shear, and the bending moments are calculated based on the bearing pressures under the factored loads. The program uses a sophisticated algorithm based on integrals to find the areas, volumes, and centroids of these irregular resulting geometric shapes. A detailed step-by-step report is available to the touch of a tab, which is updated with every new change. In addition, ASDIP Foundation uses a pre-formated colorful text-with-values output for easier identification of the problem areas. ASDIP Foundation generates a graphical view of the designed footing and the resulting pressures and forces, as shown. The program also generates the moment and the shear plan views for the controlling combination, as well as a view of the construction section and elevation with the reinforcement information.
