The Continuous Strip Footingfooting that supports several points of contact or a region of points of contact
Strip footing supports a length of wall or a line of closely spaced columns, for example.
In Tekla Structures, strip footing has a polygon shape that the user defines by picking points.
Reinforcement plug-incomponent that is developed using Tekla Open API
Plug-in is a .dll file and loaded inside Tekla Structures process.
Plug-ins can be started from the applications and components catalog.
allows to create the reinforcement for Strip Footings of any shape (poly shape).
