Mat3D

Mat3D

Mat3D is a general purpose yet comprehensive mat foundation design software. It completes both soil and pile supported, multi-load point mat foundations quickly and accurately. Because it designs pedestals, soil-supported mats or pile-supported pile caps in minutes, you will experience significant productivity gains in completing mat foundation designs.

Mat3Dis a general purpose yet comprehensive mat foundation design software. It completes both soil and pile supported, multi-load point mat foundations quickly and accurately. Because it designs pedestals, soil-supported mats or pile-supported pile caps in minutes, you will experience significant productivity gains in completing mat foundation designs. Whether you are designing mat foundations for a precast concrete parking structure, equipment, or a building, Mat3D’s easy-to-learn and easy-to-use graphical interface will get you going in just a few minutes. Even if you use Mat3D after a significant time lapse from its first use, you will not require any re-learning; you can expect to become productive instantly. Mat3D will help you meet or exceed your project schedule demands consistently. With its ability to design foundations subjected to unlimited load cases and combinations, to generating design sketches and material quantities i n minutes, Mat3D will increase your productivity significantly at every stage of your project.
