Foundation3D -PetrochemicalEquipment FoundationDesign
Do you have to design a horizontalexchanger, horizontal vessel, or avertical vessel/tower foundation withminimal information available to yousuch as equipment geometry,shipping and operating weights?Would you like to have the windloads on the above equipmentgenerated automatically from justthe equipment geometry?Would you want the basic loadcombinations on the equipmentgenerated automatically?Would you like to save considerabletime in reanalyzing your previouslydesigned foundation now that thepile pattern is no longersymmetrical?Would you like to analyze/designyour pipe rack foundation for anumber of load cases and differentunfactored and factored loadcombinations?Foundation3D is a spread andcombined footing analysis/designtool that completes soil or pilesupported foundation for industrialequipment such as horizontalexchanger, horizontal vessel, verticalvessel or tower, pipe racks and othermiscellaneous plant design supportswith minimal input.- Allows multiple system of units forinput and output - English, Metricand SI- Supports ACI 318, BSI 8110, CSAA23.3 and IBC building codes- Generates wind loads automaticallyfor exchangers, vessels and towersbased on ASCE recommendations- Generates basic load combinationsfor equipment foundationsautomatically with just equipmentgeometry input- Optimizes footing design (spread orcombined) for an exchanger and
horizontal vessel foundationdepending on saddle to saddledimensions and soil/pile criteria- Considers buoyancy effects in thecalculation of bearing pressures,stability ratios and pile capacities forfooting/pile cap design- Accepts unlimited type and numberof load cases for equipment or non-equipment foundations- Accepts unlimitedtype and numberof factored and unfactored loadcombinations for equipment or non-equipment foundations- Analyzes/Designs pile cap onsquare, rectangular and circularregular and irregular pile patterns- Designs square, rectangular,octagonal and circular piers- Provides multiple choices of longitudinal rebar arrangement inthe piers- Allows you to change thelongitudinal and tie bar arrangementin the piers- Analyzes/Designs pier extensions(no footing) for octagonal piers forlighter vessel/tower loads- Analyzes/Designs square,rectangular and octagonalfootings/pile caps- Considers wide beam shear andpunching shear in footing/pile capdesign- Provides positive and negativemoment reinforcement in thefootings/pile caps- Provides multiple choices of footingrebar arrangement- Allows the user to change thefooting rebar size and spacing- Accepts anchor bolt arrangementon piers for display on sketches andconstruction drawing- Generates material quantities- Generates detailed design sketchesof foundation plan, elevation and asection through the pier showingreinforcement- Interfaces with Autocad,Microstation and SmartSketch toproduce detailed constructiondrawings- Generates a summarized and adetailed input and output report- Provides you the ability to bringdesign sketches into Microsoft Wordor Excel
