Key benefits:

  • Quickly model your footings with the simple and efficient graphical user interface.
  • Confidently optimize your design and comply with design Code provisions.
  • Impress clients and plan-checkers with eye-catching condensed or detailed reports.
  • Extensive documentation, solved examples, and blog posts to guide you throughout the software.
  • Use your valuable time wisely while ASDIP FOUNDATION does the hard work for you.


  • Any Windows® Operating System. No additional software required.
  • Full compliance with:
    • ACI 318-14
    • ASCE 7-05 or 10
  • Versatility to model a full set of load combinations, or just a single pre-combined load.
  • Specify water table location for buoyancy check.
  • Customizable design criteria, options, and conditions.
  • Three different unit systems available:
    • US (in, ft, Kip, ksi)
    • SI (cm, m, N, MPa)
    • MKS (cm, m, Tn, Kg/cm2)
  • Rich user interface to model the geometry, materials, loads and rebars.
  • Multiple loading for dead, live, roof live, snow, wind and seismic.
  • Column may be eccentric on footing in both directions.
  • New clean and uncluttered layout design.
  • Multiple visual controls to model the reinforcing steel.
  • Combined footings can be either rectangular or trapezoidal.

Calculation results:

  • Complete design of footing and footing-column interface.
  • Complete stability analysis for overturning, sliding, uplift, and bearing.
  • Graphic display of bearing pressures, one-way shears, punching shears, and moments.
  • Plain concrete strength considered.
  • Column / pedestal structural design included.
  • Percentage of passive / friction acting together.
  • Software finds the controlling combination for each condition to optimize design.
  • Exact mathematical solution of bearing pressures, shears and moments under biaxial loading.
  • Detailed step-by-step reports with exposed formulas and Code references.
  • Combined text-with-values output message updated with each change.
  • Outstanding output with Print Preview.
  • Three ways to show the calculations: At-a-Glance, Condensed, and Detailed.
  • Construction sketch of your footing updated with each change.


  • Project Manager handles calculations and file management.
  • You are in complete control of every single aspect of the design.
  • Design your concrete footings within minutes (not hours).
  • Verify every design step quickly. Not a “black box”.
  • No silly assumptions or math shortcuts. Confident, accurate, and reliable results.
  • Focus your attention on engineering, and let ASDIP FOUNDATION handle all the mathematical complexity.
  • Multiple calculations stored in a single project file.
  • Safely create, organize, manage, and store your electronic calculations.


I have used this structural engineering software for several months and it’s clearly the best structural engineering software in my library. This software is straight forward, up-to-date, reliable, and the customer service is just great.
