Extension to reinforced concrete footings for sleeve & block footings

The program FUNDA from RIB is our choice for the dimensioning of foundations of all kinds. We regularly use the time-saving load transfer from the support program BEST. The quality of the results had been convincing for years. Now we see the new ergonomics of operation and expression as further highlights.

Overview

  • Design of block and sleeve foundations with interactive optimization of the foundation geometry for the geotechnical analyses
  • Modern interface with ribbon, quick access toolbar & property tables with an overview at a glance
  • Extended load transfer from BEST as well as HOST and STUR software
  • Soil mechanics analysis and determination of soil pressures using double eccentricity according to DIN 1054, or EN 1997-1 with national annexes for DE, AT & SK/CZ
  • Reinforced concrete design according to DIN 1045, DIN 1045-1 or EN 1992-1 with national annexes for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK for single load cases and load combinations
  • Sleeve design according to DIN 1045, DIN 1045-1 or EN 1992-1 with national annexes for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK
  • The design according to old standards supports "existing constructions"
  • Generation of a reinforcement plan for sleeve and block foundations
  • Simple and clear evaluation of results

Benefits

The functionality of the programme can be extended by RTfooting-Prefab to the analysis and design of block and sleeve foundations as an additional licensed option to FUNDA. Additionally, to the application options already mentioned in RTfooting, RTfooting-Prefab contains the following complementary features:

  • graphically interactive processing of block and sleeve foundations together with an rectangular cross section of the column
  • presetting of a smooth / rough formwork as well as of the bond area of a sleeve design
  • verification and dimensioning of arbitrary polygonal foundation slabs with integrated as well as superimposed sleeve or as block foundation according to DIN 1045, DIN 1045-1 or EN 1992-1 with corresponding NA for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK
  • design of sleeve according to DIN 1045, DIN 1045-1 or EN 1992-1 with corresponding NA for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK

A construction suggestion for the reinforcement design of rectangular foundation slabs with and without sleeves as well as for block foundations can be created. The reinforcement drawing can be transferred directly to ZEICON as ZAC macro, or in the DXF format via ZACView to any CAD system.

This enhancement makes the RTfooting application an enormously powerful structural engineering application for an economic calculation and design of block and sleeve foundations. Even technically demanding engineering tasks in the field of prefabricated structural members can be solved.
