The "Analysis" frame shows the analysis results. Several computations can be carried out for a specified task.

The frame appearance is adjusted based on the selected verification methodology:

  • Verification according to the factor of safety or the theory of limit states - the last column in the table allows for inputting the design coefficients, which multiply the calculated forces. These forces are displayed on the desktop and are updated for every change of data and setting in the frame.
  • Analysis according to EN 1997 - the last column in the table allows for specifying whether the load acting on a structure is considered as the secondary one. This is explained in more detail in the "Load combinations" section. Providing the analysis is carried out according to "Design approach 1", it is necessary to enter the combination number in the right part of the window.
  • Analysis according to LRFD - in this case, the last column is not displayed at all.

The "Analysis" frame displays the analysis results. The frame serves to select the type of computed earth pressure (active pressure, pressure at rest, passive pressure, increased active pressure). Two options, "Create soil wedge" and "Minimum dimensioning pressure", are available when computing the active earth pressure.

The analysis results are displayed on the desktop and are updated immediately for an arbitrary change in input data or setting. Visualization of results can be adjusted in the "Drawing Settings" frame.
