ELASTIC SUPPORT BEAM USE CASE

Challenge

Traditional foundation design methods often overlook the dynamic behaviour of high-rise buildings on elastic foundations, leading to potential settlement issues and structural instability. Leveraging Prokon Elastic Support Beam, engineers conduct rapid analysis of the building’s foundation system, considering variations and gaps in the elastic medium and the presence of rigid supports. This enables engineers to assess the structural response of the foundation under various loading conditions, including dead loads, live loads, and environmental factors.

Solution

Engineers input the foundations geometry, structural properties, and soil characteristics into Prokon Elastic Support Beam and analyse the interaction between the building structure and the elastic foundation. The software’s advanced algorithms and simulation capabilities allow for accurate modelling of complex foundation systems, accounting for factors such as soil stiffness, foundation flexibility, and load distribution.

Results

By utilising Prokon Elastic Support Beam, the engineering consultancy gains valuable insights into the behaviour of the building foundation, identifying potential areas of concern and optimising the design for stability and performance. The software’s ability to handle varying cross-sections, elastic foundation conditions, and multiple loads ensures that the foundation design meets safety standards and regulatory requirements.
