General description

CYPE programs allow users to analyse and design surface and deep foundations: footings and pile caps with strap and tie beams, mat foundations and foundation beams.

The analysis and design of footings and pile caps form part of the modules which are common to CYPECAD and CYPE 3D. Mat foundations and foundation beams are exclusive to CYPECAD. Both programs also analyse and design steel column baseplates bearing on the foundations that are being designed. The elements related to the foundations of a structure resolved with CYPE software are:

  • Footings
    Using the Footings module, CYPECAD and CYPE 3D can design foundations resolved using rigid reinforced concrete footings or rigid mass concrete footings. These may be single column or shear wall footings or combined footings with several columns and/or shear walls bearing on them, their arrangement left to the user’s choice. This module also designs strip footings below walls as well as any strap and tie beams that have been defined.

    More information on this module, common to CYPECAD and CYPE 3D can be found in the Footing analysis and design section.
  • Piles
    Using the Pile caps module, CYPECAD and CYPE 3D allow for users to choose from a wide range of pile cap types (linear, triangular, rectangular, pentagonal and hexagonal) and provide their design, as well as having the option to provide strap and tie beams.

    More information on this module, common to CYPECAD and CYPE 3D can be found in the Pile cap analysis and design section.
  • Advanced design of surface foundations
    This module complements the Footings and Pile caps modules. It allows for the design of foundations composed of footings or pile caps with special intersections (strap and tie beam intersections) and geometrical trimming of the footings.

    More information on this module, common to CYPECAD and CYPE 3D can be found in the Advanced design of surface foundations section.
  • Mat foundations and foundation beams
    The mat foundations and foundation beams module is exclusive to CYPECAD and allows this program to design foundations containing mat foundations and foundation beams.
  • Baseplates
    CYPECAD and CYPE 3D contain several modules which allow users to analyse and design baseplates, the Joints I, Joints II, Joints III, Joints IV and Joints V modules and the Baseplates module.
