Earth Pressures – Calculation of earth preassures ( 65.00 Bytes )

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

Main features

  • 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, Muller Breslau, Mazindrani, Caquot Kérisel, Coulomb,…)
  • 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)
