Design Strips in SAFE v12

Design Strips in SAFE v12

Design Strips in SAFE v12

How should design strips placed in safe v12? Is it enough just to cover the whole area of slab? or there is a necessary offset from the edge of the slab?

When there is an opening, Is it necessary to trim the design strips in opening area?

RE: Design Strips in SAFE v12

Defining strip in SAFE is similar to what you do manually see some examples and watch demo video on CSI website you will get the idea.

RE: Design Strips in SAFE v12


I have my raft foundation which consist of shear walls and columns. how should I place my strips? I'm having a doubtful results as I have used 2 meter auto strips. It gives me 150 - dia 20 which is obviously wrong. As you can see in file attached, I just simplify the layout, but my main concern is in the portion of shear walls and its adjacent columns which safe gives too much reinforcement. Do you have any idea on how to place my design strips to obtain a correct number of reinforcement?

Columns = red
Shear wall = blue

Very much appreciated,
