GGU-RETAIN

GGU-Retain GGU-RETAIN

Analysis of retaining walls based on the Recommendations of the German Working Group for Excavations and for Waterfront Structures (EAB + EAU).


The analysis of the following retaining walls can be carried out: 

  • Sheet pile walls 
  • Combined sheet pile walls 
  • Soldier pile walls, also with tubular sections 
  • Cast-in-place walls (diaphragm walls, bored pile walls, bored soldier pile walls) 
  • Mixed-in-place walls 

Capabilities:

  • Analysis after BLUM or with the modulus of subgrade reaction method 
  • Analysis of soldier pile walls and bored soldier pile walls with the p-y- method 
  • Choice of analysis using either partial safety factors according to EC 7, DIN 1054:2005, ÖNORM EN 1997-1 or global safety factor (DIN 1054 old) 
  • System input using absolute heights 
  • Analysis using active earth pressure, at-rest earth pressure and increased active earth pressure 
  • Active earth pressure coefficients according to DIN 4085, after Culmann or user-defined values 
  • Redistribution of the active earth pressure definable 
  • Consideration of earthquake according to EC 8 or EAU 1990, additionally consideration of a horizontal load from a rigid structure or from dead weight of the wall 
  • Passive earth pressure coefficients according to DIN 4085:2011, Streck, Caquot/Kerisel, Culmann or user-defined values 
  • Soil properties can be selected from an expandable database of common soils 
  • For the p-y-method: option to choose between non cohesive, cohesive-soft and cohesive-firm soils 
  • For the modulus of subgrade reaction method: subgrade reaction modulus along the embedment depth with any course possible 
  • Berms on the active and the passive side 
  • Bounded and double-bounded surcharges on the active and passive side 
  • For the p-y-method: option to choose between static and cyclic surcharges 
  • Loads with limited plan dimensions according to “Spundwand-Handbuch”, fig. 4.20, or DIN 4085:2017-08 
  • Consideration of displacement and action boundary conditions, anchors, struts, etc. 
  • Consideration of pre-tension and pre-deformations  
  • Consideration of the hydraulic gradient on the active and the passive side 
  • Horizontal water pressure approach: classical or with flow conduits according to the potential theory. With it: consideration of hydraulic gradients on the active and the passive side 
  • Steel analysis according to EC 3 
  • Expandable database using standard profiles for soldier piles and sheet piles 
  • Consideration of thickness loss by rust 
  • Possibility to allocate a steel retaining wall different sections  
  • Possibility to consider inserted beams for soldier pile walls, bored soldier pile walls and diaphragm walls 
  • Reinforced concrete design and crack width verification according to EC 2 for circular and rectangular cross-sections 
  • Print out table for the reinforcement distribution 
  • Buckling analysis according to DIN EN 1993-1-1 using 2nd order theory 
  • Verification of hydraulic heave safety and buoyancy safety  
  • Verification for base heave safety, heave of anchor soil 
  • Verification of the deep-seated stability with optimization of anchor lengths 
  • Verification of the pull-out resistance 
  • Design of infill for soldier pile walls 
  • Wailing design 
  • Anchor steel design 
  • Graphical visualization summarizing various stages of construction and retreating stages 
  • Choice of visualization of earth pressure, water pressure, moments, shear force, normal force and bending line 
  • Visualizing of the chosen retaining wall in a legend 
  • Interface to the computer program GGU-STABILITY for the verification of the global stability 
  • User-defined design of output sheet 
  • Print or copy screen sections, e.g. for transfer to a word processor 
  • Integrated Mini-CAD system for additional annotation of graphics

Webinar

Construction Phases and Dismantling of Retaining Walls with GGU-RETAIN (44min)

This webinar will demonstrate the GGU-RETAIN program’s ability not only to design a retaining wall for a single – and final – depth of an excavation pit, but also to have a close look at state variables like moments, shear forces, displacements etc., which vary with different phases of the excavation. Additionally our expert Prof. Uwe Glabisch will lead you through the menu of the program GGU-RETAIN to outline its competence to compute the state of a dismantling, meaning here to cut a row of anchors and to…
