FAD Tools is a software package that provides for the design and analysis of foundations.

Tools include:
MFAD for Single pole structure foundations
HFAD for H-Frame structure foundations
TFAD for Tower structure foundations


MFAD (Moment Foundation Analysis and Design)

MFAD analyzes and designs foundations for pole structures that are subject to overturning moment loading. The program can be used for drilled shaft foundations or direct embedment pole foundations. MFAD uses a four-spring load-deflection model and an ultimate capacity model for the geotechnical analysis and design of laterally loaded drilled shafts. For direct embedded poles, MFAD uses a two-spring loaded-deflection model.

Design and Analysis Capabilities include:
• Drilled shaft foundations in soil
• Drilled shaft foundations in soil and rock
• Concrete Design for drilled shaft foundations
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil using soil backfill
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil and rock using soil backfill
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil using concrete backfill
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil and rock using concrete backfill


 

HFAD (H-frame Foundation Analysis and Design)

HFAD analyzes and designs H-frame foundations for pole structures that are subject to axial, lateral, and moment loading in uplift and compression. The program can be used for drilled shaft foundations or direct embedment pole foundations. HFAD uses a four-spring load-deflection model and an ultimate capacity model for the geotechnical analysis and design of laterally loaded drilled shafts. For direct embedded poles, HFAD uses a two-spring loaded-deflection model.

Design and Analysis Capabilities include:
• Drilled shaft foundations in soil
• Drilled shaft foundations in soil and rock
• Concrete Design for drilled shaft foundations
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil using soil backfill
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil and rock using soil backfill
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil using concrete backfill
• Direct embedded pole foundations in soil and rock using concrete backfill


 

TFAD (Tower Foundation Analysis and Design)

TFAD analyzes and designs Tower foundations structures that are subject to axial and lateral loading in uplift and compression. The program can be used for drilled shaft foundations. TFAD uses a four-spring load-deflection model and an ultimate capacity model for the geotechnical analysis and design of laterally loaded drilled shafts.

Design and Analysis Capabilities include:
• Drilled shaft foundations in soil
• Drilled shaft foundations in soil and rock
• Concrete Design for drilled shaft foundations
