SO-Foundation calculates bearing capacity of shallow foundations considering both shear failure and settlement.
Hansen, Meyerhof, Vesic, Terzaghi and Eurocode methods are employed for the determination of shear failure. Elastic and consolidation settlements can be calculated using various options.
Fully detailed reports are also presented.
General capabilities of the software may be summarized as:
1-Introduction of up to 20 soil layers.
2-Correlation of soil parameters (to be added soon).
3-User is informed about the common ranges regarding input parameters.
4-Pressure isobars are calculated and generated below footings.
5-Determination of bearing capacity of shallow footings (Spread, Continuous and Mat) with different dimensions considering both shear failure and settlement (Elastic and Consolidation).
6-Calculation of settlement corresponding to the allowable pressure.
7-Calculation of modulus of subgrade reaction.
8-Calculation and generation of modulus of subgrade reaction contour on the footing surface.
9-Exporting results to MS Excel format.
10-Presentation of calculation report with sufficient details.
11-Creation of profiles for the desired settings.
12-Saving files with a minimal size.
