Prefab Wall

This program is used to verify retaining walls made of prefabricated blocks (retaining block walls).

Description

  • Verification analysis can be performed employing EN 1997-1, LRFD or classical approach (limit states, factor of safety)
  • EN 1997 – option to choose partial factors based on National Annexes
  • EN 1997 – option to choose all design approaches, consider design situations
  • Internal stability analysis (overturning, slip, load-bearing capacity of foundation soil)
  • Possibility to define any specific size of the block (part of a wall)
  • Generally layered soil environment
  • Built-in database of soil parameters
  • Arbitrary number of surcharges applied to structures (strip, trapezoidal, concentrated load)
  • Arbitrary number of inserted forces (anchors, safety fences, etc.)
  • Modelling of water in front of and behind structures, modelling of artesian water
  • General shape of terrain behind the structure
  • Front face resistance in front of the structure (at rest, passive reduced passive)
  • New types of foundation below the prefab wall (strip footing, piles)
  • Berms in front of the structure
  • Earthquake effects (Mononobe-Okabe, Arrango, Chinese standards)
  • Possibility to consider minimum dimensioning pressure
  • Analysis of earth pressures in effective and total parameters
  • Supports mesh overhangs with anchorage
  • Multiple construction stages
  • BIM-compatible export via the IFC interface
