Soil Spring Constants for Foundations Design

Soil Spring Constants for Foundations Design

This spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of determining the soil spring constants for foundations for the vertical direction (Z), as well as for the horizontal directions (X and Y). Specifically, the soil spring constants, both at the surface and at a user input embedment depth, are determined in the analysis. 

The soil spring constants obtained from the analysis can then be readily used and input into RISA-3D finite element analysis computer models of foundations, mats, and bases of pits or tanks. (Note: instructions for use are provided at the end of the calculation worksheet.)
