Earth Pressures

This program computes basic earth pressures (active pressure, passive pressure and pressure at rest) acting upon an arbitrary shaped structure.

Description

  • Generally layered soil environment
  • Built-in database of soil parameters
  • Arbitrary number of surcharges applied to structures (strip, trapezoidal, concentrated load)
  • Modelling of water in front of and behind structures, modelling of artesian water
  • General shape of terrain behind the structure
  • Various earth pressure theories (Absi, Sokolovski, Müller-Breslau, Mazindrani, Caquot-Kérisel, Coulomb, SP 22.13330)
  • Shape of earth wedge (vertical, skew)
  • EN 1997 – option to choose partial factors based on National Annexes
  • EN 1997 – option to choose all design approaches, consider design situations
  • Analysis of earth pressures in effective and total parameters
  • Analysis of earth pressures of overconsolidated soils
  • Earthquake effects (Mononobe-Okabe, Arrango, Chinese standards)
