STAAD Foundation Advanced - Finite Element Analysis (FEM)
STAAD Foundation Advanced takes full advantage of 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEM) and employs an innovative technique to optimize reinforcement requirements. The program automatically detects uplift and redistributes the force.
No matter how complex the foundation is, STAAD Foundation Advanced can design it with its object-based modeling environment via the mat foundation module. Whether it is rectangular, complex polygonal, circular or includes openings, STAAD Foundation Advanced tools can model, analyze, design and produce drawings. The sophisticated mesh generation automatically handles holes (cut-outs) as well as inner regions with different thicknesses or soil property. Physical loading objects can be as diversified as circular load, quadrilateral load, line load, and point load on space.
