**What is a Footing Size Calculator**?

A Footing Size Calculator is a tool used to estimate the minimum required size of a footing (the base of a structure that distributes the load to the soil) based on the applied load and the soil’s bearing capacity.

**Why Use a Footing Size Calculator**?

This calculator is essential in structural engineering and construction to ensure that footings are adequately sized to support the loads imposed on them while considering the bearing capacity of the soil.

## Footing Size Calculator

This calculator helps estimate the minimum required footing size based on load and soil characteristics.

**How to Use a Footing Size Calculator:**

- Input the applied load in pounds.
- Input the soil bearing capacity in pounds per square foot (psf).
- Click the "Calculate" button to perform the calculations.
- The calculator provides the estimated minimum required footing size in square feet.

**Example Calculation:**

Suppose you have an applied load of 10,000 pounds and the soil has a bearing capacity of 2,000 psf.

The calculator would estimate the minimum footing size is 5 square feet.

Adjust the inputs and calculation formulas based on actual engineering requirements for accurate results.
