Description Dimension Solution software is an analysis program for estimating the bearing capacity and settlement of mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) composite raft foundations using geogrid reinforcement. It is based upon empirical data from extensive field and laboratory research conducted on Tensar geogrids. Typical applications: one to two-story buildings; footings less than six feet in width (square, rectangular, or strip); maximum applied bearing pressure less than 4,000 psf; soils with uniform layers; and problem soils which consist of soft clays or loose sands. After entering the bearing capacity soil profile and the reinforced fill properties, the bearing capacity factor of safety can be calculated for both the unreinforced and Tensar geogrid reinforced case. Depending on the footing geometry and soil type, the software offers three methods of analysis to calculate settlement. The soil profile is made up of multiple soil layers, each with specific characteristics, strength parameters or results of lab tests.
