The RAFT computer design program complies with Australian Standards AS2870, AS3600, AS1170, and related referenced documents.
RAFT is one of the easiest computer programs of its kind you will ever use, whether you’re a novice or an experienced practitioner.
Ten feasible design solutions
Because there is no unique solution of all the variables in slab design, RAFT analyzes a large number of combinations, rejects those that do not satisfy all the design criteria, and arranges those that do satisfy all the design criteria in ascending order of estimated material cost. Results for the ten lowest material cost solutions are displayed, enabling designers to aim for a least cost solution.
Single page printed design report
Any of the ten feasible design solutions RAFT produces can be printed on a single page, for distribution to any of the parties involved in the design, construction and maintenance of residential slabs and footings.
