Static Ka, Kp and Ko
LateralK calculates the active, passive and at-rest lateral earth pressure coefficients based on both Rankin and Coulomb methods. The latter considers the effect of soil-wall friction, backslope, and wall batter angle. The magnitude of the resultant force and its point of application is calculated.
Seismic Kae and Kpe
Lateral earth pressure coefficients for earthquake condition are calculated according to Mononobe-Okabe method for different horizontal and vertical components of the ground acceleration. Detailed values of Kae and Kpe are calculated for every 0.05g steps of av and ah. In addition to earth pressure coefficients, the seismic surcharge load (Pae-Pa) and total seismic force (Pae) behind the retaining wall are presented.
Schematic Soil Section & Report
All forces and point of application of forces are presented in a schematic section which can be saved in image format, and can be incorporated into geotechnical report.
As you may know, one year has already passed since we acquire the NovoCPT program from Novo Tech Software Ltd. I just want to congratulate you and your team for the well developed software. It is easy to use, accurate, and works seamless with ConeTec files, which is the main CPT company that Thurber works with. I would like also to take the opportunity to thank your support team for the quick and helpful support for the few questions we had. Definitely NovoCPT became a very helpful tool for our geotechnical work.
