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.
This is a long time that I have been using NovoSPT and found it a perfect software. You can easily estimate the soil parameters based on SPT blow counts in just a few minutes. Almost all new and old equations are implemented in this program and I no longer need tens of papers and handbooks for correlations.
I can say that NovoLiq is the best soil liquefaction analysis program based on in-situ tests and provides even probabilistic methods. Again, potential of soil liquefaction in depth of borehole is assessed only in few minutes, with most accurate results.
