Masonry Wall – Design checking of reinforced masonry retaining walls ( 4.00 KB )

Verification of reinforced masonry walls.

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
  • Dimensioning of reinforced masonry wall according to EN 1996-1-1, AS 3700
  • Possibility to define any specific masonry block by user
  • Analysis of internal stability (overturning, translation, load-bearing capacity of foundation soil)
  • Check of concrete cross-sections according to various standards (AS 3600, EC2, BS 8110, IS456, CSN, PN ..)
  • Check of masonry cross-sections according to AS 3700, EN 1996-1-1
  • 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
  • Possibility to not consider pressure in the front
  • General shape of terrain behind the structure
  • 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)
  • 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
