Can we design Strap footing in SAFE 12. If yes then how should we model it to get the actual behavior.

Answer
Dear Gulam

You can design strap footing with safe but you must review the design because the strap may have a deep beam behaviour. You will need check the strap for shear deformation, in some cases. but safe give you a good idea about your work.
