Analysis and design of cantilever walls using global and partial safety factor concepts. Among other things, the program simplifies optimisation of spur width and reinforced concrete design


  • System input using absolute heights
  • Choice of analysis using either partial safety factors to DIN 1054:2005 or EC 7 or global safety factor (DIN 1054 old)
  • Berms on the active and passive sides
  • Bounded and double-bounded surcharges on active and passive sides
  • Analysis using active earth pressure,
    at-rest earth pressure or increased active earth pressure
  • Active earth pressure coefficients to
    DIN 4085 or user-defined values
  • Passive earth pressure coefficients to
    DIN 4085:2011, Streck, Caquot/Kerisel, Culmann or user-defined values
  • Choice of hydraulic gradient consideration on active and the passive sides
  • Consideration of displacement and action boundary conditions, anchors, struts etc.
  • Examines bearing capacity 5° condition to DIN 4017
  • Settlement analysis to DIN 4019
  • Limiting depth analysis using p % of
    overburden stress, a multiple of footing width b' or a fixed value
  • Analysis of overall system stability (sliding, overturning, bearing capacity)
  • Analysis of hydraulic heave safety and
    buoyancy safety
  • EQU analysis
  • Deep-seated stability analysis with
    optimisation of anchor lengths
  • Reinforced concrete design and
    crack width analysis compliant with EC 2
  • Anchor steel design
  • Choice of earth pressure redistributions (among others to EAB 1988 or EAB 2006)
  • Choice of result visualisations, among
  • others for earth pressure on equivalent wall, water pressure, moments, shear force, normal force, displacement, soil pressure, settlements
  • Consideration of pre-stresses and
  • pre-deformations
  • Seismic effects via additional horizontal loads and/or altered earth pressure coefficients to EC 8 or EAU 1992
  • Interface to the GGU-STABILITY program (slope failure analyses)
  • Adopted standard, program name and
  • version can be included in the General legend
  • User-designed output sheet
  • Print or copy screen sections, e.g. for
  • transfer to a word processor
  • Integrated Mini-CAD system for additional annotation of graphics
