Graphical parameters

The command gives the opportunity to modify the parameters of the graphics in the results report (bearing capacity - foundation base, bearing capacity - bearing surface depth), to choose the author for the computation of stresses in the subsoil, alter the length of the foundation in the table diagram report.

Stresses diagram

Displays a diagram showing the development of stresses in the subsoil, estimated at the center of the foundation, as a function of the depth z using the theory of Boussinesq or Westergaard (in base of the choice made in "Pressure bulbs")

Example: modifying the value of the bearing surface depth's step will modify the representation scale along the x axis of the (Q, D) diagram.

Diagrams report

Displays a table that shows the various values of the allowable load as a function on the bearing surface depth D and width B, for each length L chosen from among those proposed. The table is constructed based on the general settings of the graphics assigned in the menu.

Bearing capacity/depth diagram (Q D)

Displays a diagram showing the development of the bearing capacity (calculated with the chosen methods) as a function of the bearing surface depth D. For each pair of values of the base B and length L is constructed a diagram that can be copied (using "Copy" command from the "Edit" menu) or printed (from the menu "Output").

Bearing capacity/base diagram (Q B)

Displays a diagram showing the development of the bearing capacity (calculated with the chosen methods) as a function of the foundation length B. For each pair of values of the bearing surface D and the length L is constructed a diagram that can be copied (using "Copy" command from the "Edit" menu) or printed (from the menu "Output").
