Which theoretical approaches are used in RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro for pocket foundations with rough bucket sides to divide the forces and moments and carry out the reinforcement layout?

Answer

The theoretical approaches for this can be found in "Leonhardt, Fritz. (1977). Vorlesungen über Massivbau, Drittel Teil, (3rd ed.). Berlin [etc.]: Springer."

Special attention must be paid to Chapter 16.3 "Single Foundations for Columns."
