ASDIP Foundation v5.0.0.1 [Size: 10 MB] ...
ASDIP Structural Foundation is a software designed to calculate the types of foundations and foundations. With this program you can design concrete foundations according to the latest IBC and ACI 318 standards, and get comfortable with repetitive and time consuming calculations. Each structure uses a special foundation or foundation based on the purpose for which it was built. For example, some structures use wide foundations. Some of the other are band strips and maybe synth strips. No matter which real implementation you are going to use. This software is capable of performing all kinds of foundations with accurate calculations and high speed. We advise structural engineers to use the ASDIP Foundation to reduce the design time and calculations required for their concrete foundations. This product is provided by ASDIP Structural Foundation, which specializes in the field of construction structures.

PLAXIS Monopile Designer CONNECT Edition V21 Update 1 [Size: 3.7 GB] ...
PLAXIS Monopile Designer (formerly PLAXIS MoDeTo) introduces an enhanced design method for monopile foundations. It transfers the results of the PISA Joint Industry Research Project to daily engineering practice. PLAXIS Monopile Designer enables dramatic reductions in the amount of steel of each monopile and, as such, in the overall costs of any wind farm. It can be used as a stand-alone tool for the rule-based design method and in connection with PLAXIS 3D for the numerical-based design method.

CONNECT Edition V21 Update 1 adds functionality to improve productivity by improving the numerical process for non-linear systems using the new subspace accelerator, and we can use a new API to automate Limit Equilibrium slope stability analyses. On top of that, we made running analyses for offshore analysis of suction buckets easier using the new PLAXIS-SACS Suction Bucket Analysis tool. By consolidating the product lines for geotechnical analysis since Version 21, we can now make big steps in interoperability between the Finite Element solution and the Limit Equilibrium solutions. The new consolidated PLAXIS product line also offers great new functionality with new constitutive soil models, e.g., NorSand, PM4Silt, and a new way to deal with unsaturated soil strength. We invested in improvements on tunnel CAD import. And we added a calculation convergence log to better understand the numerical process.
