Description ABwalls 2000 is a design tool for Allan Block segmental retaining walls which outputs construction drawings, along with the technical support data. It provides tools to turn a stationed wall line drawing from a site plan into a wall elevation view including station points detailing top, bottom and grade elevations. A plan view function provides representation of the wall layout including wall stationing, with linear and radius lines to create simple or intricately shaped plans and choose fillets to automatically add curved transitions between straight wall sections. Section panels are determined by changes in wall height or by the designer's specification. Editing tools allow the designer to adjust panels and section locations and to place section panels based on geogrid roll lengths. It analyses external and internal stability with a range of editing tools and design options including static and seismic designs, live and dead load surcharges, live and dead load line loads, continuous and broken back slopes above and grid level matching. The designer can produce site specific general notes to compliment their design analysis. There is a macro to transfer the wall elevation, plan view, sections and general notes from to AutoCAD. Features include: Saved wall designs up to 1000 feet (300 meters plus) long and 40 feet (13 meters) high. Design process that includes Elevation, Plan, Sections Design and Analysis, General Notes, Material Takeoff, Job Costing, and Proposal. Editable Wall Profiles, Editable Design Parameters, Point Loading, Seismic Designs, Grid Level Matching and Section Notes. Exportable Graphics (.wmf). Printing Capabilities for 8.5 x 11, 11 x 17, A3, A4 or full size plotter. Mathcad Hand Calculation File for detailed hand calculations. Geogrid Systems Included: Fortrac, Mirafi, Stratagrid, Raugrid, Synteen, and Terragrid. The CD includes an electronic file of 400 plus pages of documents on the product and the engineering theory used to design geogrid reinforced retaining walls and thirty five AutoCAD drawings in .dxf and .dwg. The program is available in English, Spanish, Dutch and German.
