Plinth is the app to compute and verify shallow foundations using the allowable-stress method.


- Bearing capacity of shallow foundations against general shear failure (Hansen 1970, drained and undrained conditions) and punching (Vesic 1975, drained conditions)
- Can be used with mono and multi-layer soils
- Can be used with eccentric and inclined loads with also verifying horizontal friction
- Can be used with inclined foundation and ground
- Compute the weight of the plinth and the water pressure if present
- Can be used with base slab and continuous beam
- You can choose between metric or imperial system
- Theory and standard equations for all formulas used and typical geotechnical parameters available
- Detailed step description and e-mail sending of all computations and results

Plinth is the must-have app for every pro and student in structural world. With few steps you can, once known some geotechnical parameters of the soil, verify with detail the security factor for shallow foundations and understand the collapse mechanisms that may happen. Theory and standard equations describe the process and relations used by the app giving you all the basic information you need.
