Adding and Editing Type of Reinforcement

The "New type reinforcement (Edit type of reinforcement, Inserted type of reinforcement)" dialog window contains the following items:

Reinforcement group and Type of reinforcement

  • a combo list contains reinforcement group and individual types of reinforcements from a database, or its allows for inputting the "user-defined" type of reinforcement

Short-term characteristic strength

  • the strength value can be changed only for reinforcements stored with the help of "User's catalog"

Analysis of long-term strength

  • a combo list enables to choose the way of analysis of long-term strength: "input reduction factors" (direct input of factors), "calculate reduction factors" (factors are determined based on the selected lifetime of a reinforcement, soil Ph and grain size) or "input strength" (already reduced long-term strength is input)

Reduction factors

  • the values of factors reducing a short-term tensile strength - can be input directly or calculated based on the selected options in combo lists (lifetime, chemistry, grain size)

Overall coefficient of model uncertainty

  • the value of factor to reduce a short-tem strength is input

Long-term design strength

Slip resistance

  • the "Coefficient of direct slip along reinforcement" can be input directly or calculated based on the type of soil

Pull out resistance

  • the "Coefficient of interaction of soil and geo-reinforcement" can be input directly or calculated based on the type of soil

The "User's catalog" button in the bottom part of the window opens the "User's catalog" dialog window.
