Analysis and Design of Concrete Foundation Systems
spMats is structural engineering software for analysis, design, and investigation of concrete foundation
systems including pile caps and slabs on grade.
Powered by a sophisticated FEM solver, spMats offers a clean and simple interface for developing and editing
models for structural foundations. From small simple column footings to large and complex industrial building
foundations, spMats features intuitive visual tools to create, run, and iterate on your models with confidence.
Organize your final foundation design results in a customizable report to create a professional project submittal.
spMats calculates foundation slab displacement, design moments, and the required reinforcement for any
foundation geometry and loading. For ground-supported slabs, the soil bearing pressure is calculated and
compared with allowable soil bearing capacity. For pile-supported foundations, results include pile reactions
in compression and tension where pile uplift occurs.
With a versatile user interface, spMats aids engineers worldwide to design spread and combined footings, pile
caps, wall footings, building and shear wall foundations, and industrial foundations. spMats offers design templates
for tank pads and equipment foundations including transmission and substation structural foundations.
