Stepped Footing

  • How do I step down a continuous footing under a wall in RAM SS. If I split the wall and add separate footings under each part I get a error because then the lower wall ends up under the upper footing. Is there a way around this. Thanks.
  • Currently there is no way to directly do what you are trying to do. The interaction between the upper footing, the wall and the lower footing would be very complex to capture analytically, so at this time the program doesn't permit it.
