ASDIP FOUNDATION is structural engineering software utilized by engineers for design of foundations, such as spread footings, strap footings, and combined footings. ASDIP FOUNDATION substantially simplifies time-consuming calculations for structural engineering design.


Spread Footing Design
Strap Footing Design
Combined Footing Design


  • Software finds the controlling combination for each condition to optimize design.
  • Simple and efficient graphical user interface to quickly model your footing.
  • Complete control of every single aspect of design.
  • Impress clients and plan-checkers with the eye-catching reports.
  • Design concrete footings in minutes (not hours).
  • Confidently optimize your design and comply with the design Code provisions.
  • Verify every step of the design quickly. Not a “black box”.
  • Versatility to model a full set of load combinations, or just a single load.
  • No silly assumptions or math shortcuts. Reliable, accurate results.
  • Design spread, strap, or combined footings fast and reliably.
  • Focus on engineering and let ASDIP FOUNDATION handle mathematical complexity.
  • Any Windows® Operating System. No additional software required.
  • Full compliance with:
    • ACI 318-14
    • ASCE 7-10
  • Complete stability analysis for overturning, sliding, uplift, and bearing.
  • Exact mathematical solution of bearing pressures, shears and moments under biaxial loading.
  • Column may be eccentric on footing in both directions.
  • Graphic display of the bearing pressures, one-way / punching shears, and moments.
  • Customizable design criteria, options and conditions.
  • Complete design of footing and footing-column interface.
  • Plain concrete strength considered.
  • Combined text-with-values output updated with each new change.
  • Three different units systems available:
    • US (in, ft, Kip, ksi)
    • SI (cm, m, N, MPa)
    • MKS (cm, m, Tn, Kg/cm2)
  • Outstanding quality outputs with Print Preview.
  • Multiple calculations under a single project file.
  • Project Manager handles calculations and file management.
  • Both At-a-Glance and Detailed calculation tabs.
  • Multiple loading for dead, live, roof live, snow, wind and seismic.

New Features In V. 3

  • Step-by-step calculations with formulas exposed and Code references.
  • New clean and uncluttered layout design.
  • Column / pedestal structural design included.
  • Percentage of passive / friction acting together.
  • Buoyancy effect due to high water table.
