STAAD Foundation Advanced is a comprehensive foundation design program that offers the ability to model complex or simple footings, including those specific to Plant facilities such as octagonal footings supporting vertical vessels, strap beam foundations supporting horizontal vessels, ring foundations supporting tank structures, and drilled or driven pier foundations.

Efficient design and documentation is realized through its plant-specific design tools, multiple design codes with U.S. and metric bar sizes, design optimization, and automatic drawing generation. The plant-specific tools include vertical vessel foundations (octagonal and square shape supported on soil or on piles), and heat exchanger foundations (combined, two isolated and two isolated with a grade beam), tank ringwall foundations, and driven or drilled pier foundations.

Powerful modeling includes a physical modeling system, a toolkit mode, automatic pile arrangement, and FEM, which allows complex or simple layouts. The foundation toolkit mode was introduced to address the needs of special footing types like drilled pier and dead man anchor guy foundations.
