Resistances may contain base friction and cohesion, passive earth pressure, other structures or a shear key. Load and resistance factor design (LRFD) mode can be employed. If the wall is a reinforced concrete structure, the software can also produce the reinforcement design for any reinforced concrete structure wall. Besides, there is a soil pressure calculator.
b. Apply load and resistance factors combinations from AASHTO LRFD 2007, ACI 318-08 and IBC 2006.
c. Load and resistance factors editor to change or generate new combinations
d. Concrete reinforcement design from ACI 318-08.
e. Force diagrams (moment, shear and normal) for every combination.
f. Loads, resistances and reactions diagrams for every combination.
h. Workout nominal soil bearing resistance by applying theoretical or semi empirical methods.
i. Ability to select active or at rest soil pressures.
j. Ability to select elastic (rock) or plastic (soil) bearing pressures.
k. Ability to enter user's soil pressure coefficients.
l. Reinforcement design for upper stem, lower stem, toe and heel.
m. Unit systems, properties, load and resistance factors, reinforcement design method, and page setup from last editing which turn out to be the default for new design.
n. Ability to include other loads on wall.
o. Offer stability resistances from a shear key, toe passive soil pressure, adjacent structure, anchors or piles.
p. Enable or disable a shear key, water or seismic.
q. Various types of units of measurements like metric, SI and British unit systems are supported.
r. Easy, clear, quick and simple software operation.
s. Help facilities, can be printed to produce manual.
