- Complete control of every single aspect of design.
- Impress clients and plan-checkers with eye-catching reports.
- Design retaining walls in minutes (not hours).
- Intuitive wall design using graphical interface.
- Confidently optimize design and comply with Code provisions.
- Verify every design step quickly. Not a “black box”.
- No silly assumption or math shortcut. Reliable, accurate results.
- Graphic plot moment and shear diagrams to optimize reinforcing bars.
- Check stability forces, shear, and moment diagrams per load combination.
- Customize design criteria to achieve a particular need.
- Any Windows® Operating System. No additional software required.
- Full compliance with:
- ACI 318-11
- Complete stability analysis for overturning, sliding, and bearing.
- Full set of design code load combinations.
- Specify water table location.
- Graphic plot of moment and shear capacity.
- Graphic display of forces and pressures acting upon the wall.
- Concrete design of stem, toe, heel, and key.
- Customizable design criteria, options, and conditions.
- Combined text-with-values output updates with each design change.
- Three different units systems available:
- US (in, ft, Kip, ksi)
- SI (cm, m, N, MPa)
- MKS (cm, m, Tn, Kg/cm2)
- Outstanding quality outputs with Print Preview.
- Multiple calculations under a single project file.
- Three tabs of results: At-a-Glance, Condensed, and Detailed calculations.
- Tapered stem (toe or heel).
- Either Rankine, Coulomb, or Equivalent Fluid theories.
- Multiple loading including surcharge, wind, and seismic.
- Software finds controlling load combination for each component in bending and in shear.
- Graphic generation of structure updated with each design change.
New Features In V. 3
- Stem material can be concrete, masonry, or combination of both.
- Step-by-step calculations with formulas exposed.
- Granular checking of stability and strength by load combination.
- The restrained walls can be either fixed or pinned at base.
- A strip surcharge load can be modeled and wall pressures are calculated.
- Water buoyancy effect included.
