FOUNDATION DESIGN & ANALYSIS CONSULTING
AMG, Inc. provides comprehensive foundation design and foundation analysis services including but not limited to:
- Deep foundations
- Shallow foundations
- Cast-in-place concrete
- Structural steel and associated miscellaneous metals
One of our key tools for foundation analysis and foundation design is STADD III - ISDS software (Structural Analysis and Design – Integrated Structural Design System). The software enables us to review results on-screen and modify the structure as appropriate. Final analysis is then provided in hard copy form. It also allows for various design alternatives, including computer design checks of structural members selected by the engineer. This software flags any overstressed members for modification. It also incorporates a subprogram for structural member “least weight” design.
It's imperative to get a good foundation under a structure for it to stand the test of time.
