HeliCAP® Engineering Software

Being a well-known and respected leader in the foundation repair industry, Walder Foundation Products has a long-standing reputation to uphold, and part of that recognition hinges upon our dedication to being more than a premier distributor of quality foundation repair products. We also provide engineers with the support they need to be successful. 

When it comes to engineering software and design in Richmond, we’re happy to offer our customers free HeliCAP® Helical Capacity Design Software, v3.0. This interactive engineering software lets Richmond contractors perform powerful soil parameter calculations to solve tension and compression requirements associated with helical anchors for a particular project. The HeliCAP software provides help screens and numerous reference modules and offers prompts that let you control and maintain necessary criteria to affect the same calculation processes that you get from the Hubbell Power Systems, Inc. (HPS) application.

You can use the software for foundation designs for Richmond property projects, heavy-guyed loads, tiebacks, soil nails, etc., and you get design examples for:

  • Tension
  • Compression
  • Tieback
  • Soil Screw Wall
  • End-Bearing and Friction

We know precisely what you need to successfully complete your project because we’ve been in your boots, waist-deep in an excavated hole before.
