[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.
