Analysis and design of retaining structures manufactured using concrete elements, stacked blocks and gabions or noise abatement walls.


  • Choice of analysis using either partial safety factors to DIN 1054:2010, EC 7, Austrian Standard ÖNORM EN 1997-1 or global safety factors (DIN 1054 old)
  • Automatic noise abatement wall generation
  • Geogrids definition via company products
  • Verifiction of sliding safety, overturning safety and maximum geogrid forces
  • Determination of external and internal element stability (Inner stability to DIN 4093:2012-08)
  • Bearing capacity safety and settlement analysis to DIN 4017 and DIN 4019
  • Analysis of static equilibrium compliant with DIN 1055 or EQU compliant with EC 7
  • Wind load consideration to DIN EN 1991-1-4
  • Analysis of pull-out resistance of geogrids via gamma(B)
  • System input using absolute heights
  • Soil properties can be selected from an expandable database of common soils
  • Consideration of active and passive berms
  • Analysis using active earth pressure, at-rest earth pressure and increased active earth pressure
  • Active earth press. coefficients to DIN 4085
  • Passive earth pressure coefficients to DIN 4085:2011, Streck, Caquot/Kerisel
  • Consideration of active and passive bounded and double-bounded surcharges
  • Consideration of horizontal area loads
  • Triangular load from stepped loads
  • Automatic design of any geogrids present using two-part wedge failure mechanisms
  • Limiting depth analysis using x % of overburden stress, a multiple of the foundation width or as a fixed value 5° condition” test to DIN 4017
  • Seismic effects via additional horizontal loads and/or altered earth pressure coefficients to EC 8 or EAU 1990 
  • Interface to the GGU-STABILITY (slope stability analysis)
  • Choice of result presentation for earth pressure, moments, horizontal force and vertical force 
  • Adopted standard, program name and version can be included in the General legend
  • Freely definable positioning and sizing of graphical elements and legends
  • Print or copy screen sections, e.g. for transfer to a word processor
  • Integrated Mini-CAD system for additional annotation of graphics
