Introduction

General information

With the program Retaining Wall analysis and design according to EN 1997-1 and EN 1992-1-1 are performed. The retaining walls can be L- or T-shaped with or without haunch.

The calculation is performed with and without surcharge load on the backfill. The program performs bearing- and sliding capacity checks, calculates  settlements and performs concrete design.
