The Bentley’s STAAD development team is pleased to announce the availability of STAAD Foundation Advanced CONNECT Edition V9 Update 7 (09.07.00.087) . This software is used for the analysis and design of isolated footings, combined footings, strip footings, pile caps and mat foundations.
STAAD Foundation Advanced a software package for the analysis and design of a variety of foundations. These include general foundation types such as isolated, combined footings, pile caps, slab on grade or on piles (mat foundations), octagonal, strap, and, plant foundations such as vertical vessel and heat exchanger foundations.
A part of the STAAD family of products, STAAD Foundation Advanced can import and update the geometry, loads, and reactions from a STAAD.Pro model after which it will design the foundation type that we want at those supports. If the type happens to be a pilecap, it can determine a number of pile arrangements and design the pilecap for the arrangment that we choose. Data can also be brought from spreadsheets (e.g., such as that in Microsoft Office Excel®) into STAAD Foundation Advanced.
The output from the program includes customizable reports of the calculations performed, general arrangement drawings, and schedule drawings. The reports are a useful tool for line by line checks to determine the correctness of the calculations if the engineer wishes to do so. The program’s graphical interface enables users to view the displaced shapes, shear and moment diagrams, stress distribution, and, reinforcement layout.
For mat foundation designs, STAAD Foundation Advanced creates a finite element model of the mat slab on grade. Soil is treated as spring supports whose stiffness is determined based on the size of the elements of the FE mesh. The model is then analyzed using STAAD.Pro, and, design of the slab is performed by aggregating the results across elements that are clustered into design strips.
