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.
RISAFoundation modelAutomatic Mesh Generation
Slabs are automatically discretized into well formed quadrilateral – not triangular – elements at a specified mesh size. Beams are automatically discretized.
Thick Plate Modeling
The thick plate method of RISAFoundation provides more realistic results than the thin plate modeling procedure found in other products.
Comprehensive Rebar Calculations and Detailing
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.
RISA-3D and RISAFloor Integration
RISAFoundation excels as a stand alone application. Its full integration with the RISA Building System brings productivity to a higher level. Manage all project footings in one model, in one file, and within the same environment as your structure. All loads are automatically applied and all footings are optimized at once.
Foundation systems can be any combination of mat slabs, grade beams, piles and pile caps, retaining walls, spread footings and combined footings
Slabs can be any arbitrary shape with varying thickness and can include openings and discontinuities
Pedestals can be added to spread footings and slabs
Model and design grade beams: between slabs, on slab perimeters, between spread footings and independent
Variable soil properties possible throughout the foundation system
Impose point supports anywhere in the model. Supports can be rigid, tension only, compression only or tension-compression spring
Automatic generation of circular mat slabs
Comprehensive CAD-like graphic drawing/editing capabilities that let you draw and modify as well as snap, copy, scale, delete, move, etc.
Versatile drawing grids (orthogonal, radial, skewed, DXF underlay)
Universal snaps allow drawing without grids
Powerful graphic select/unselect tools including box, line, polygon, invert, criteria, spreadsheet based, with locking
True spreadsheet editing with cut, paste, fill, math, sort, find, etc.
Unlimited undo/redo capability and automatic timed backup
Dynamic synchronization between spreadsheets and graphics
Constant in-stream error checking and data validation
