ABUTMENT

This program is used to design bridge abutments including wing walls. It allows to check the abutment for overturning, translation, bearing capacity of foundation soil and dimensioning of decisive or reinforced concrete sections (including wings).

Features

  • Verification analysis can be performed employing EN 1997-1, LRFD or classical approach (limit states, factor of safety)

  • EN 1997 – option to choose partial factors based on National Annexes

  • EN 1997 – option to choose all design approaches, consider design situations

  • Front face resistance in front of the structure (at rest, passive, reduced passive)

  • Modelling of water in front of and behind structures, modelling of artesian water

  • Analysis of internal stability (overturning, slip, bearing capacity of foundation soil)

  • Check of concrete cross-sections according to various standards (EC 2, BS 8110, IS456, CSN, PN)

  • Arbitrary number of surcharges applied to structures (strip, trapezoidal, concentrated load)

  • Arbitrary number of inserted forces (anchors, safety fences, etc.)

  • Generally layered soil environment

  • Built-in database of soil parameters

  • Verification of construction joints and wall keys

  • General shape of terrain behind the structure

  • New types of foundation below the abutment (strip footing, piles)

  • Berms in front of the structure

  • Calculation of earth pressures in effective and total parameters

  • Earthquake effects (Mononobe-Okabe, Arrango, Chinese standards)

  • Multiple construction stages

  • Large number of possible wall shapes
