FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND DEMO FILES
Q: Is there a demo copy or sample outputs of the program available online?
A: Yes the help file is available, it contains the program design basis information and context sensitive program images. There are sample outputs in PDF format as well. Click here to download the files...
Q: Does the program handle SI unit conventions?
A: The program conforms to SI unit conventions as well as FPS. Reinforcing standards are per ASTM A-615 for FPS, and per ASTM A-615M as well as Canadian Metric Standards for SI. All Foot2000 users are eligible to receive free SI version updates.
Q: How does the continuous footing portion of the program address the Safety Factor of 1.5 required for overturning on Wind Load cases?
A: The ACI Alternate Design Method equation 0.667D + W reduces the input dead load as well as the weight of the concrete footing to account for the safety factor. The 0.85D + Eq load case accounts for a similar earthquake overturning requirement.
Q: How do I enter a Modulus of Sub-Grade Reaction directly?
A: In the Soil Allowables screen enter in the desired bearing capacity under the Direct Specification Method and then adjust the Safety Factor to get the desired value.
Q: Does the program design Caissons?
A: No. If the request becomes more popular then a Caisson design tool may be added.
Q: Why won't the program allow me to specify a square footing thickness that is thinner than the computed thickness?
A: We don't want to see any shear failures and the program reflects that philosophy.
