An isolated, or single-column footing, is used to support the load of a single column. They are the most common footings, particularly where the loads are relatively small and the columns are not closely spaced¹.

SkyCiv Foundation has the following features when designing Isolated Footings:
- Intuitive user-interface with easy inputs
- Can solve multiple foundations in the same project
- Provides graphical representation of the bi-eccentricity soil pressure
- Geometry and Analytical Diagrams graphics
- Summary table of design check values and ratios
- Detailed, step-by-step calculation report (PDF or HTML download)
SkyCiv Foundation supports the following capabilities when designing Isolated Footings. :
- Design checks in compliance with ACI 318 or AS3600
- Eccentric footing design in both plan dimensions
- Overturning Moment and Sliding Factor of safety Calculations
- Supports multiple load cases such as Dead, Live, Earthquake, Wind and etc.
- Customization of loads, materials, reinforcement and design criteria including Factor of Safety
