Extensible Reinforcements - Active Earth Pressure

Active earth pressure is considered in the calculation of internal stability for extensible reinforcements (Standard - straight slip surface, AASHTO - Extensible, FHWA NHI-10-024).

The program allows us to multiply the calculated earth pressure by coefficient kr/ka (according to the AASHTO standards). Recommended values are shown in the following picture.
