A Complete Foundation Solution. RISA Foundation gives you the ability to solve and optimize all types of foundation systems, including mat foundations, grade beams, pile caps, retaining walls, isolated spread footings and combined footings. RISA Foundation also fully and completely integrates with RISA-3D and RISAFloor, providing a complete structural design solution. Whether running standalone or from within RISA-3D/RISAFloor, RISA Foundation provides unparalleled ease, flexibility and power for the drawing, design and optimization of foundation systems. Automatic mesh generation, thick plate modeling and comprehensive rebar calculations and detailing are some of the many reasons why RISA Foundation stands apart.
RISA Foundation modelAutomatic Mesh Generation
Slabs are automatically discretized into well formed quadrilateral – not triangular – elements at a specified mesh size. Beams are automatically discretized.
Thick Plate Modeling
The thick plate method of RISAFoundation provides more realistic results than the thin plate modeling procedure found in other products.
RISAFoundation modelComprehensive Rebar Calculations and Detailing
RISAFoundation gives you the freedom to design and detail a slab in any direction. Grade beams, pile caps and spread footings are automatically designed and detailed as well. Rebar schedule and DXF export are also available.
RISA-3D and RISAFloor Integration
RISAFoundation excels as a stand alone application. Its full integration with the RISA Building System brings productivity to a higher level. Manage all project footings in one model, in one file, and within the same environment as your structure. All loads are automatically applied and all footings are optimized at once.
