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.
I am a relatively new user of NovoSPT. I have found it easy to use and useful in day-to-day Geotechnical Engineering tasks. Particularly impressive and time saving is its ability to retrieve input directly from gINT data files. Most importantly, I have found the responsiveness to support requests including those suggesting additions to the library of correlations to be exceptional.
