Design isolated foundations

You can design isolated foundations (pad bases, strip bases, and pile caps) either in a batch or individually.

Note:

Before bases or pile caps can be designed, you have to run an analysis to establish the design forces. You can run either the Analyze All (Static) command or one of the combined analysis and design commands (such as Design All ).
