The "Water" frame allows, by pressing the button, to select a water type. The selected type with a graphic hint of input values is displayed in the left part of the frame. Water parameters (h1, h2...) can be edited either in the frame by inserting values into input fields, or on the desktop by using active dimensions.

The combo list serves to specify whether the influence of water uplift pressure due to different tables at the foundation joint is considered. The uplift pressure can be assumed to be linear, parabolic, or it may not be considered at all. When verifying the wall, the uplift pressure in the base of footing due to the different water tables is introduced as a special force.  

The last option is a manual input of pore pressure both in front and behind the structure. Two tabs, "In front of structure" and "Behind structure", appear with tables. The table is filled with values of pore pressure in front of the structure or behind it at a depth of "z" (z-axis).

The groundwater table can also be specified above the structure or earth profile, respectively - in such a case, the depth of water is input with a negative value.

The earth pressures analysis with the influence of water is described in the "Influence of water", a theoretical part of the help.

The program further allows us to specify a depth of tensile cracks filled with water.
