This program is used to make advanced design of embedded retaining walls using the method of elasto-plastic non-linear analysis.
It allows the user to model the real structure behavior using stages of construction, to calculate the deformation and pressures acting upon the structure, to verify the internal anchor stability or to verify cross-sections (steel, RC, timber) and the bearing capacity of the anchors.
The GEO5 Sheeting Design program can be used to make basic design of the required length of the structure in soil, to calculate the internal forces on the structure or to verify cross-sections.
The program allows to transfer some data for additional verification to the following programs:

The program GEO5 Sheeting Check allows to design following shoring excavation and retaining wall structure types:
The software in general is very good and ties in well with the way we do things here. From our review, the calculation results compares very well with our methods for both slope stability and settlement. The graphics and the ‘point-and-click’ data input are also very good and makes the program very easy to use.
It’s really great how easy the software is. I’m now doing the calculations so much faster and easier than doing it manually and most importantly, the technical customer service team are great and they respond instantly and professionally to any question or clarification. Thank you guys for being so awesome. High fives!
Deciding to select and use the GEO5 system at Alston Associates was one of the better decisions that I made! Over the years I have made several requests for program adaptation and every single suggestion is now incorporated in your programs.
