Description MSEW is an interactive program for the design and analysis of mechanically stabilized earth walls. It follows the design guidelines of AASHTO98/Demo 82 as well as NCMA. The user can explore some design options and concepts beyond the formal guidelines; in the AASHTO/FHWA mode, the user can override all default values. Version 1.0 was developed for the US Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The current version 2 includes enhancements such as calculations of quantities, surcharge loads, use of Coulomb lateral earth pressures for both internal and external stability, user generated databases, improved presentation of slope stability results, graphic files compatible with AutoCAD. It follows the design guidelines detailed in Demonstration Project 82 (Publication No. FHWA-SA-96-071: Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes, Design and Construction Guidelines). Relevant portions of this manual are available as part of the Help menu. It also includes an option to use the NCMA design method. This option is limited to block (segmental) walls having simple geometry and using geosynthetic reinforcement.
