ASDIP Retain is a suite of modules specifically dedicated to the design of retaining walls, based on the latest IBC / ACI 318 specifications, that greatly simplifies the time-consuming calculations in any structural engineering office.

ASDIP Retain includes the design of the following two types of retaining walls:

Cantilever Retaining Walls

Design of a retaining wall supported only at the base under the combination of earth pressure, surcharge, wind and seismic loads. The module designs the wall per the load combinations of the ASCE 7.

Restrained Retaining Walls

Design of a retaining wall supported at the base and laterally restrained at the top, also known as a basement wall, under the combination of earth pressure, surcharge, wind and seismic loads. The module designs the wall per the load combinations of the ASCE 7.

ASDIP Retain Software ModulesDesign Modules

ASDIP Retain is an integrated, interactive system that combines the flexibility of a fill-in-the-blanks format with the power of Windows Forms to effortlessly develop either an optimal design or a quick investigation.

Using a screen with tabbed pages, ASDIP Retain allows you enter your data directly onto the forms and see the result immediately. This way you are always in control of the design process, since what you see is really what you get. In addition, the detailed results and the graphics are always available for you to follow by the touch of a tab.

Check graphically the stability, the shear and moment diagrams, and the construction sketches showing the rebars.

 

ASDIP Retain Overview Graphic OutputUser Interface

ASDIP Retain uses pull-down menus, dialog boxes, tool bars, and infield editing as the main user interface. These components help to elegantly manage and control the complex design algorithms, transparently to the end user, in a simple manner.

In addition, ASDIP Retain validates the input data to prevent erroneous format, such as negative values for material properties. You may intuitively develop your design with the combined text-with-values output messages, which are updated with each new change. Print Preview your report just with one click. Manage all your calculations in just one project file, just as you would do with your hand calculations.

 

ASDIP Retain Project Manager

Project Manager

The Project Manager is a very important piece in the ASDIP Retain system. It takes care of both the calculations and files management. From there you can create, copy, delete or print calculations, create and save projects, and organize your work. Save all the calculations of your project in a single file.

Documentation

Detailed on-line documentation is provided in HTML Help format to guide you throughout the software. Verification examples are provided as part of the Documentation. In addition, free technical support is always available.
