RISAFoundation gives you the ability to solve and optimize all types of foundation systems, including mat foundations, grade beams, pile caps, retaining walls, isolated spread footings and combined footings.
RISAFoundation also fully and completely integrates with RISA-3D and RISAFloor, providing a complete structural design solution. Whether running standalone or from within RISA-3D/RISAFloor, RISAFoundation provides unparalleled ease, flexibility and power for the drawing, design and optimization of foundation systems.
Automatic mesh generation, thick plate modeling and comprehensive rebar calculations and detailing are some of the many reasons why RISAFoundation stands apart.
Slabs are automatically discretized into well formed quadrilateral – not triangular – elements at a specified mesh size. Beams are automatically discretized.
The thick plate method of RISAFoundation provides more realistic results than the thin plate modeling procedure found in other products.
RISAFoundation gives you the freedom to design and detail a slab in any direction. Grade beams, pile caps and spread footings are automatically designed and detailed as well. Rebar schedule and DXF export are also available.
