Well Foundation Parameters

It determines with parameters which criteria the program will comply with in concrete design and rebar placement stage.

Specifications

Concrete cover

It is the distance from the center of gravity of the rebar to the outer face of the concrete.

Overturning safety factor

Give the overturning safety factor according to with/without earthquake conditions.

Slip safety factor

Give the slip safety factor according to with/without earthquake conditions.

Downfall safety factor

Give the safety factor for the downfall.

Min. tensile percentage

In the tensile zone, give the minimum percentage value to be used in the rebar calculation. The entered value is multiplied by the sectional area and the rebar selection is made in a way that is not less than the result.

Min. tensile interval

In the tensile zone, give the smallest possible distance between two rebars. This value is taken into consideration in the selection of rebar.

Max. tensile interval

In the tensile zone, give the value of the greatest possible distance between two rebars. This value is taken into consideration in the selection of rebar.

Min. transverse percentage

Give the minimum percentage value to be used in horizontal rebars. The entered value is multiplied by the sectional area and the rebar selection is made in a way that is not less than the result.

Min. transverse interval

Give the smallest possible distance between two rebars to be used in horizontal rebars. This value is taken into consideration in the selection of rebar.

Max. transverse interval

Give the maximum possible distance between two rebars to be used in horizontal rebars. This value is taken into consideration in the selection of rebar.

Min. compression percentage

In the pressure zone, give the minimum percentage value to be used in rebar calculation. The entered value is multiplied by the sectional area and the rebar selection is made in a way that is not less than the result.

Min. compression interval

Give the smallest possible distance between two rebars in the pressure zone. This value is taken into consideration in the selection of rebar.

Max. compression interval

Give the maximum possible distance between two rebars in the pressure zone. This value is taken into consideration in the selection of rebar.
