The frame "Stage settings" serves to input settings valid for a given construction stage.
The selected design situation determines the safety coefficients to be used in the analysis of a given construction stage.
The frame view depends on the selected verification methodology.
Next, the frame serves to specify the type of pressure acting on a wall based on the allowable wall deformation. Providing the wall is free to move, an active pressure is assumed, otherwise, a pressure at rest is used. The third option enables to load the wall by increased active pressure.
The reduction of soil/soil friction angle can be considered in one of following ways:
- do not reduce
- reduce to 2/3φ (AASHTO)
- reduce to 0
- input reduction coefficient
