Gabion – Verification of gabion walls ( 4.00 KB )

The program is used to verify the design of walls built from wired baskets filled with rock (gabions). It allows the analysis of arbitrary shapes including overhangs requiring anchoring.

Main features

  • 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, translation, load-bearing capacity of foundation soil)
  • Analysis according to the theory of limit states and safety factor
  • 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
  • Check of gabion material
  • General shape of terrain behind the structure
  • Possibility to not consider pressure in the front
  • Berms in front of the structure
  • Various types of pressures in front of the structure (at rest, passive, reduced passive)
  • Analysis of earth pressures in effective and total parameters
  • Earthquake effects (Mononobe-Okabe, Arrango)
  • Supports mesh overhangs with anchorage
  • Multiple construction stages
  • Verification of external stability of a wall using program Slope Stability
  • Analysis of bearing capacity of foundation soil in program Spread Footing
