Internal Stability

The "Internal stability" frame enables check strength of geo-reinforcement, bearing capacity for pull-out from the soil, and strength of connections. Checking the field "Reinforcement number" yields verification for individual reinforcements only. Selecting the option "Automatic verification" provides verification of all reinforcements. The result for the most critical reinforcement is displayed on the right part of the desktop. The solution procedure of internal stability is described in the theoretical part of the help.

In the table,forces caused by an active earth pressure acting on the front face of the wall in individual geo-reinforcements and points of application of these forces are shown. Further, bearing capacity of geo-reinforcements for tensile strength Rt, pull-out resistance Tp and resulting utilization is shown for each geo-reinforcement.

The frame enables us to perform more analyses of individual geo-reinforcements. The calculated forces are displayed on the desktop are automatically updated with every change of input data. The "In detail" button opens the dialog window, which contains a detailed listing of the results of reinforcement bearing capacity.

Visualization of results can be adjusted in the frame "Drawing Settings".
