ASDIP FOUNDATION is a structural engineering software for the design of concrete footings. It includes the design of pile caps based on the ACI 318 provisions and CRSI Design Guide. Sometimes the lateral capacity of vertical piles is not enough to resist high lateral loads. In those cases the use of batter piles may provide
ASDIP RETAIN is a structural engineering software to design retaining walls. However, the software is so flexible that it can also be used to design a masonry fence wall exposed to wind. This article shows the steps required for a fence wall design using ASDIP RETAIN.- Click here to download ASDIP RETAIN free 15-day trial.Fence wall design
The foundation is that part of the structure that transfers the loads to the supporting soil in such a way that the resulting bearing pressures are kept under acceptable limits. If the underlying soil is satisfactory, then a spread footing is usually the recommended solution by the soils engineer.In addition to the stability checks and
ASDIP STEEL is a structural engineering software for design of steel members and connections. It includes the design of Flange-Plated moment connections based on the latest AISC 360 provisions.The design of moment connections may become complex and time-consuming, since it involves the checking of multiple limit states, design provisions, and geometric constraints, for both bending and shear.
Anchor rods are elements designed to resist mostly tension forces, sometimes in combination with shear. Out of all the tension limit states required by ACI 318, concrete breakout is particularly important because a concrete failure would be non-ductile, and therefore it should be avoided. This blog post discusses how to calculate the concrete breakout capacity of anchor rods.
ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural software that includes the design if biaxial slender columns, multi-span continuous beams, and concrete / block bearing walls exposed to out-of-plane loads. Now ASDIP CONCRETE complies with ACI 318-19. Load combinations per ASCE 7-16. Following are the most important changes affecting the software.- Click here to download ASDIP CONCRETE free
