Program Description

Dartis Foundation calculates bearing capacity of shallow foundations considering both shear failure and settlement. Meyerhof, Vesic, Hansen and other well_known methods are employed for the determination of shear failure. Elastic, primary and secondary consolidation settlements can be calculated using various options.

General Features

  • Fine calculations report, including formulas and step_by_step calculations.
  • Supports “SI” units.
  • Introduction of unlimited soil layers.
  • Determination of the bearing capacity of shallow footings with different dimensions considering shear failure and settlement (Elastic, Primary & Secondary Consolidation).
  • Calculation of settlement corresponding to the allowable pressure.
  • Presentation of load-settlement graphs.
  • Saving files with minimal size.

Shear Failure

  • Employment of various methods.
  • Alteration of general the factor of safety.
  • the water table effect is applied.
  • Load eccentricity and inclination can be applied.
  • Plain_Strain correction of friction angle can be applied.
  • Option for calculating cohesion, unit weight, and friction angle of soil based on soil layers.


  • Alteration of allowable settlement.
  • Flexible and rigid footing types are available.
  • Option to ignore elastic settlement when consolidation settlement is calculated.
  • Elastic settlement calculations are performed by 3 methods; Schmertmann (1978) and Theory of elasticity for granular soils and Janbu (1956) for saturated clay.
  • A specified fraction of consolidation settlement will be taken into account by the user’s will.
  • Option to calculate three dimensional effect by Leonards (1974) method for primary consolidation settlement.
