With the analysis results, all designs are carried out with wall displacement control, injection-ground in anchors, tendon-injection, rupture, internal stability controls, structural reinforced concrete calculations in the wall and total collapse control. Wall sections on all shoring facades can be analyzed and recorded.

  • The program determines the pressures acting on the wall using the dependent pressures method. The load applied to the structure is derived from its deformation, allowing us to realistically model its behavior and enabling cost-effective designs. The analysis accurately takes into account the gradual construction of the wall, including the gradual development of deformations and subsequent tensioning of the anchors. The basic assumption of the method is that the soil or rock around the wall ideally behaves like an elasto-plastic Winkler material. This material is determined by the soil horizontal bed number kh and additional limiting deformations that characterize the deformation in the elastic region. Once these deformations are overcome, the material behaves ideally like plastic.

  • A numerical analysis model is created at all construction stages. Iteration is performed to determine the pressures acting on the wall. All steps are solved by the Matrix-Displacement method.

  • Y.A.S.S can be changed for all construction stages.

  • The static equivalent earthquake load acting on the wall is determined by multiplying the weight of a specific ground wedge behind the wall with the horizontal seismic acceleration coefficient.  The dependent pressure method is valid for earth pressures. There are two types of earthquake analysis in the program. Analyzes are made with theories that determine earth pressures in earthquake situations or by loading the static equivalent earthquake load on the wall. The Mononobe-Okabe method is used to determine earth pressures in earthquake situations.

Multiple models can be created in one file.                                                                         

  • Circular and polygonal slip surfaces can be defined in slope and slope analyses. Optimization is made by multiplying different surfaces from the entered sliding surface. A sliding surface that gives the minimum safety number is obtained. Optimization can be followed as an animation during analysis.                                                                                 

  • External stability analysis is performed by converting the model in the Shoring Analysis Module into a slope model.
