This concrete footing design calculator helps engineers design foundations for footings, combined footings, piles and more... The software includes calculations for overturning, sliding, structural utility ratios (one way shear, two way shear, flexure X and flexure Y) and more - as per AS 3600 and ACI 318. The free tool will also calculate the volume of concrete in your design.
This online footing calculator is a simplified version of our Foundation/Footings Design Software, which is able to handle more loads and foundation types, including Combined footings and non-symmetric isolated footings. Simply start by selecting your design code, and begin with adding or editing the dimensions of your footing via the width, height and depth parameters. The figure will automatically update itself.
This easy to use tool will help engineers calculate a number of important results for isolated and combined footings. These include overturning, dimension requirements, sliding, soil pressure, one way and two way shear and flexure capacity ratios. This gives the engineer a good indication of whether the foundation will pass or fail. The calculator is equipped with interactive graphics, multiple load types, in-built reinforcement and powerful calculation reporting. Some of these features are locked out of the free version, but feel free to check out our Foundation Design Software page for more information on the full versions features and capabilities.
This general purpose foundation calculator can also calculate concrete piles and pile cap foundations. This can be designed under the context of ACI 318 or AS 3600 (and AS 2159 for soil). This concrete pile software will display results for axial flexure, end bearing, flexure*, lateral* and shear* checks. Note: any results with an asterisk (*) are available under the paid version only.
Along with the overturning, sliding and concrete design utility ratios, the calculator will also calculate the volume of concrete in your pad footing. The result will return the cubic meters of concrete for metric systems and cubic feet for imperial unit systems. This calculator estimates the amount of concrete needed for your isolated footings, for quick back of the envelope calculations and estimates.
Further foundation design can be calculated from our full version version Foundation Design Software. This software will allow the calculation of ACI 318 and AS 3600 concrete footings (also known as concrete pad footings) with full loading capabilities and results. This includes a detailed report of the calculations and additional design features. This Foundation Design Software can also be used to calculate and design concrete piles as per AS 3600 (AS 2159) and ACI 318 with multiple soil layers, additional loading capabilities and no restrictions.
