ASDIP Retain v3.7.1 [Size: 61.5 MB] ... ASDIP RETAIN is structural engineering software utilized by engineers for design of retaining walls. ASDIP RETAIN is based upon the latest IBC / ACI 318 specifications. ASDIP RETAIN greatly simplifies time-consuming calculations in a structural engineering office. Cantilever Retaining Wall Design: This structural engineering software computes soil bearing pressures and analyzes stability of the structure. In addition, the stem can be either concrete or masonry. It performs concrete design based upon Ultimate Strength Design Method of ACI 318, and the masonry design per MSJC. The lateral pressures are calculated either per Rankine, Coulomb, or Equivalent Fluid theories. Seismic design based upon Mononobe-Okabe approach. Load combinations per latest IBC ASCE 7. Input Data: The input data required includes the geometry of the backfill, stem, toe, heel, and key. In addition, the program accepts a number of load cases, such as surcharge (strap, uniform and/or concentrated), wind, and seismic. The reinforcing steel may be specified and customized using multiple options. In addition, find the steel reinforcement to satisfy the strength requirements of all the controlling load combinations. Conservatively, ignore the soil bearing pressure in the heel design. Output: The program checks the wall stability for the service combined loads and performs the concrete design of the stem, toe, heel and key for the factored combined loads. In each particular case the controlling load combination is identified and reported. A detailed step-by-step report is available to the touch of a tab, which is updated with every new change. In addition, ASDIP Retain uses a pre-formated colorful text-with-values output for easier identification of the problem areas. ASDIP Retain generates a graphical view of the designed retaining wall and the resulting pressures and forces, as shown. The program also generates the moment and the shear diagrams for every load combination, as well as a view of the construction section and elevation with the reinforcement information. Note that the rebars can be easily optimized this way.

Restrained Retaining Wall Design: Retaining structures hold back soil or other loose material where an abrupt change in ground elevation occurs. The retained material or backfill exerts a push on the structure and thus tends to overturn or slide it, or both. Sometimes movement of the wall is restrained at the top, as in a basement. In such a wall, the overturning is prevented. The stem acts as a fix-pin beam and the heel and toe of such a wall act as cantilever beams. Since the wall cannot deflect, the backfill pressure is generally the at-rest condition rather than active condition. The design involves two major steps: the first one is the evaluation of the stability of the whole structure under the service loads, which includes the settlement and sliding failure modes, and the second one is the design of the different components, such as the stem, heel, toe and key, for bending and shear, under the combined factored loads. This structural engineering software computes soil bearing pressures and analyzes the stability of the structure. The stem can be either concrete or masonry. This software performs the concrete design based upon Ultimate Strength Design Method described within ACI 318. The lateral pressures are calculated either per At-rest, Rankine, Coulomb, or Equivalent Fluid theories. Seismic design of the backfill and water table. Load combinations per the latest IBC ASCE 7. Input: The input data required includes the geometry of the backfill, stem, toe, heel and key. In addition, the program accepts a number of load cases, such as surcharge (strap, uniform and/or concentrated), wind and seismic. The reinforcing steel may be specified and customized using multiple options. Output: This structural engineering software checks wall stability for service combined loads and performs strength design of stem, toe, heel, and key for factored combined loads. In each software calculation controlling load combination is identified and reported. A detailed step-by-step report is available in page tabs. All page tabs are updated with every design change. ASDIP RETAIN uses preformatted, colorful, text-with-values output for easy identification of design defects. ASDIP RETAIN generates a graphical view of designed retaining wall and resulting pressures and forces. This structural engineering software generates the moment and the shear diagrams for every load combination and including the construction section and elevation with steel reinforcement information. Rebar can be optimized.
