STAAD Foundation Advanced (Version 6.2) is just released. The release includes new options and enhancements of isolated and combined footings along with near complete ISM implementation. To honor many users requests, the program now supports 3 editions of ACI 318 code: 2005, 2008, and 2011. Another important enhancement is combined and octagonal footing detailed drawing which features auto scaled views, reinforcement with true thickness, sheet management, and more.
STAAD Foundation Advanced is a comprehensive foundation design program which offers the ability to model complex or simple footings, including those specific to Plant facilities such as octagonal footings supporting vertical vessels, strap beam foundations supporting horizontal vessels, ring foundations supporting tank structures, and drilled or driven pier foundations.
Common foundations such as isolated footings, combined footings, strip footings, pile caps, and mat foundations can also be designed for larger structures or using parametric wizards. It provides a streamlined workflow through its integration with STAAD.Pro and can also be used as a stand-alone program.
