The "Bearing capacity"displays the results from the analysis of foundation soil bearing capacity. The stress in the footing bottom (assumed constant) is derived from all verifications performed in the frame " ". The program "Spread footing" then considers all verifications as load cases.
The frame contains following analysis options:
The foundation soil bearing capacity is input. The eccentricity andanalysis results are displayed in the right part of the frame. The "In detail" button opens a dialog window that displays detailed listing of the results.
Pressing the "Run program Spread footing" button"Spread footing" which allows to calculate the soil bearing capacity or settlement and rotation of the footing. Pressing the "OK" button leaves the analysis mode - the results and all plots are transferred into the program "Masonry wall". The "Spread footing" program must be installed for the button to be active. Overall length of wall foundation is input.
The procedure is identical as if calculating soil bearing capacity by the "Spread footing" program. The "Run program Pile" is available if the wall has pile foundation (frame "s is input."). Pile spacing
The procedure is identical as if calculating soil bearing capacity by the "Spread footing" program. The "Run program Pile group" is available if the wall has pile foundation with more then one pile (frame "s, overall number of pile rows n and loading length l are input."). Pile spacing
The foundation soil bearing capacity is not calculated.
Visualization of results can be adjusted in the frame "".
