If you do not have access to PC Mats then any decent FEM program will do.  The only trick is that you will need to work with your geotech to develop the one way soil springs that you will evenly space for the reactions then the loading would be applied as normal.

Mat Foundation

I have a 5 story structure that is going to be support by a mat foundation.  The structure is a bearing wall type building with uniformly space bearing walls at 10ft.  Does anyone have and example or reference for designing such a foundation.  Any recommended software

Thanks in advance
