Foundation design is an essential component of a structural design. However, current processes are tedious, time consuming, and prone to error because they are predominantly manual and paper-based. STAAD users traditionally relied on spreadsheets for designing foundations, which is not an efficient solution.
STAAD Foundation radically streamlines foundation design by seamlessly integrating structural analysis output with a myriad of foundation configurations. It generates preliminary drawings and a calculation-sheet, detailing step-by-step design processes along with design clauses and equations. The program greatly enhances designers' experience through an integrated foundation project environment, including design optimization and interference check.
