The "Surcharge" frame contains a table with a list of input surcharges. Adding surcharge is performed in the "New surcharge" dialog window. The input surcharges can be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.
All input parameters of a surcharge can be modified in the construction stage where the surcharge was specified. Only the surcharge magnitude can be modified in all subsequent construction stages (the "Adjust surcharge" option).
Either permanent, variable or accidental surcharge can be specified. Selecting the particular type of surcharge also renders the corresponding design coefficient. Accidental surcharge with a favorable effect is not considered in the analysis.
The Influence of surcharge on the slope stability analysis is described in the theoretical part of the help.
In this frame, it is also possible to input a special type of surcharge - the water above the terrain.
