Reinforced Concrete Pad Footing AS3600 Compliant
Title: Reinforced Concrete Rectangular Pad Footing Design
General Description: Calculates the reinforcement required for a reinforced rectangular or square concrete footing with a
rectangular or square columns at the centre of the footing, for flexure and checks 1 way and 2 way shear at the concrete column, using ductility class N reinforcement.
Limitations: For rectangular or square pads only, with no applied moment or horizontal forces
. Does not design for shear reinforcement.
