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 I know your NovoSPT software, is quit nice and valuable compilation of the literature. I hope you will expand your dataset and make more general software for the community. I used NovoSPT software that provided by Novo Tech and it is quite well established and friendly working software. In fact, there is a lot of correlations and the ratios that may be used for estimation of the unknown variables from known as statistical tools. I believe that Novo Tech works kindly to make our scientific life easy. thank for them.
