Design Software

CORD (Code Oriented Raft Design) is an efficient user-friendly tool for analysis and design of residential footings on reactive clay soils.

Version 8 integrates a graphical user interface and improved compatibility in the Windows environment with the proven reliability of the CORD analysis engine. CORD is based around the Walsh Method of footing design (refer to AS2870, Appendix F1), and has been widely used in design offices throughout Australia since 1987.
