Sheeting Check

This program is used to make advanced design of embedded retaining walls using the method of elasto-plastic non-linear analysis.

It allows the user to model the real structure behavior using stages of construction, to calculate the deformation and pressures acting upon the structure, to verify the internal anchor stability or to verify cross-sections (steel, RC, timber) and the bearing capacity of the anchors.

The GEO5 Sheeting Design program can be used to make basic design of the required length of the structure in soil, to calculate the internal forces on the structure or to verify cross-sections.


  • Method of elasto-plastic non-linear analysis i.e. the magnitude of pressures acting upon a structure depend on its deformation

  • Variety of pre-defined types of cross-section:

    • Pile wall (Secant pile wall, Tangent pile wall, Contiguous pile wall)

    • Soldier pile wall (Berliner wall) - Steel cross section (I, HEB)

    • Sheet pile wall

      • Steel cross-sections (Skyline, Arcelor Mittal, Vítkovice Steel, Agastyl, ThyssenKrupp, Gerdau, Bethlehem Steel, Mer Lion Metals)

      • Vinyl cross-sections (CMI, ESP Everlast Synthetic Products)

    • Concrete rectangular walls (Diaphragm wall, Milano walls)

    • Steel-concrete cross-sections

    • Timber pole wall

    • Other – possibility to input own material characteristics

  • Possiblity to model double-row pile wall

  • Anchored, strutted and cantilevered walls supported 

  • 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

    • Built-in database of anchors:

    • Pre-stressed bar anchors (VSL, Dywidag, ARCO, SAS)

    • Strand anchors (VSL, Dywidag)

    • Helical anchors (Helical Anchors Ltd, Chance, MacLean)

    • Anchor bars (VSL, Minova)

    • Deadman anchors

  • Bearing capacity of anchors (Anchor Strength, pull-out Resistence (soil), Pull-out Resistence (grouting))

  • Analysis of non prestressed anchors and soil nails 

  • Analysis according to the theory limit states and safety factor

  • Verification of internal stability of anchors

  • Various methods for the evaluation of the modulus of subsoil reaction (Schmitt, Ménard, Chadeisson)

  • Automatic or manual iteration of modulus of subgrade reaction

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

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

  • General shape of terrain behind the structure

  • Berms in front of the structure

  • Analysis of earth pressures in effective and total parameters

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

  • Check the failure by heave and verification of failure by piping of soil

  • Utilization of passive resistance

  • Possibility to consider minimum dimensioning pressure

  • Struts and springs can be defined

  • Temperature load of props

  • Envelope of internal forces for individual construction stages

  • The structure can be loaded by specified forces and moments

  • Dimensioning of RC, steel and timber cross-sections according to various standards (EC, BS, SNiP, CSN, Chinese standards etc.)
