Description LoadCap carries out the calculation of bearing capacity, failure loads and settlement of foundations on soils according to the methods of Hansen, Terzaghi, Meyerof, and Vesic and of foundations on rock according to Terzaghi and Zienkiewicz. Computation of the foundation constant according to Terzaghi and Bowles. Elastic settlement is calculated by the methods of Timoshenko and Goodier. Consolidation analysis by Schmertmann's method. 1D consolidation with time. Settlement calculation may be performed using: Elasticity theory, 1D consolidation, Schmertmann, or Burland and Burbridge methods. Settlements may be calculated for any given point both within and outside the foundation. Foundations may have an inclined base or be subject to eccentric loads. For soils, drained and undrained conditions are considered. Unlimited number of soil layers. Graphical representation of permissible load against foundation depth; permissible load against foundation width; load - settlement diagram. Display of stress contours derived by Boussineq's theory. Library of soil parameters and an editor to customise these. An Embankment module provides for analysis of embankment structures. Reports may be edited in preview, printed or exported to any text processor in RTF format. Export of graphical output to DXF or BMP. Print preview of graphical output with relocation, sizing, cropping, scaling, text addition and headings, prior to printing. S.I. measurement units. HTM Help file and PDF manual file. Interface languages: English, Italian, Spanish.
