Analysis of bearing capacity according to DIN 4017 and of settlement according to DIN 4019


  • Choice of analysis using either partial safety factors to DIN 1054:2010 or EC 7 or global safety factors (DIN 1054 old)
  •  Bearing capacity equations to DIN 4017 (2006/old), Terzaghi, Meyerhoff, Hansen or Vesic can be selected
  • Analysis of multiple footings of a single type (variation of footing width)
  • Analysis of single rectangular footings or single circular/annular footings
  • System input and visualisation using absolute heights
  • Soil properties can be selected from an expandable database of common soils
  • Consideration of multiple horizons and determination of mean governing soil properties using a logarithmic spiral
  • Tests the “5° condition”, and corrects through iterative reduction of shear friction angles that are above the current mean
  • Punching analysis for flexible and rigid footings (DIN 4017)
  • Determination of torsional stiffnesses
  • Settlement analysis at the characteristic point (DIN 4019) 
  • Sliding safety analysis adopting user-defined angles possible
  • Consideration of berms and slope inclinations
  • Consideration of footing base inclinations
  • Consideration of pre-loading for settlement analysis 
  • Consideration of kappa correction coefficients (DIN 4019)
  • Creation of a footing analysis diagram with (acceptable) bearing pressure or allowable soil pressure and a set of curves with the resulting settlements as wll as modulus of subgrade reaction contours
  • Footing plan view (pad footing) with forces, kernel widths, settlements etc.
  • Presentation of analysis results as tables
  • Footing export to the GGU-STABILITY program (slope stability analyses)
  • Presentation of system geometry
  • Presentation of stress distribution
  • Presentation of soil properties, general information on your analysis data, adopted standard, program name and version displayed in legends
  • Freely definable positioning and sizing of graphical elements and legends 
  • Print or copy screen sections, e.g. for transfer to a word processor
  • Integrated Mini-CAD system for additional annotation of graphics
