GGU-FOOTING for the calculation of base failure and settlement. The program includes data input with permanent presentation of the system on the screen. Every change of data is shown on the screen, so that optimum control of data input is given. Graphical output. Capabilities: Foundation diagrams for strip footings and pad foundations. Takes into account multiple horizons and gives a mean value of soil characteristics using a logarithmic spiral. Tests the "5% condition", and corrects through iterative reduction of the angles of shear friction that are above the current mean. Calculates settlement at the characterising point. Takes into account bench and slope inclination, tilt of foundation floor, and pre-loading for settlement calculation. Presentation of system geometry, calculation results as tables, stress distribution, soil characteristics and general information on initial calculation data. Creates a foundation diagram with permissible soil consolidation and a set of curves with the resulting settlement. Freely definable positioning and sizing of graphic elements and legends. Mini-CAD system, allowing free use of text and other graphic elements in forms.
