Earth Pressures

This program computes basic earth pressures (active pressure, passive pressure and pressure at rest) acting upon an arbitrary shaped structure.


  • Generally layered soil environment

  • Built-in database of soil parameters

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

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

  • General shape of terrain behind the structure

  • Various earth pressure theories (Absi, Sokolovski, Müller-Breslau, Mazindrani, Caquot-Kérisel, Coulomb, SP 22.13330)

  • Shape of earth wedge (vertical, skew)

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

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

  • Analysis of earth pressures in effective and total parameters

  • Analysis of earth pressures of overconsolidated soils

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