The SAFI FOOTING CALCULATOR allows the user to quickly and easily design reinforced concrete footings without the need to create and analyze a complete structural model (joints, members, load combinations, etc.).
The supported footing types are isolated square and rectangular footings, strip (wall) footings and combined footings.
The input data consist of entering the type of footing, the applied loads, the required design parameters, the design standard, the type of column (or wall) and optionally the dimensions. The reinforcement bars are selected from the built-in bar libraries. The bar libraries can be used independently from the design standard (Canadian reinforcement bars can be used with the American ACI standard for example).
The SAFI FOOTING CALCULATOR currently supports the following design standards:
– ACI 318-02 American reinforced concrete standard
– A23.3-14 and A23.3-04 Canadian reinforced concrete standard
– ECCS 203-2001 Egyptian reinforced concrete standard
– Eurocode 2-2004 European reinforced concrete standard
The SAFI FOOTING CALCULATOR can be used in French or English with metric units, imperial units or any combinations of metric and imperial units.
The SAFI FOOTING CALCULATOR is a stand-alone application which can be used alone or in conjunction with the GSE Concrete software, part of the GSE (General Structural Engineering) software.
