Description VERSAT-MSEWall provides design calculation of a mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall including external global stability (factors of safety on sliding, over-turning and bearing), and internal reinforcement stability (factors of safety on rupture and pullout). Base input parameters include reinforcement length (assumed to be horizontal), vertical arrangement, reinforcement tensile/rupture load capacity, soil/reinforcement frictional coefficient, and backfill soil unit weight and lateral pressure coefficients (Ka or Kae), which may be obtained in advance using VERSAT-KaKp. In addition to a triangle distribution of lateral soil pressure, the calculation module also allows for a trapezoid distribution especially for simulation of seismic soil pressure where soil pressure is non-zero at the wall top. The web page includes a force diagram for the MSE wall, and all equations used in the calculation can be downloaded on the web page through the tab Download Calculation Note. The analysis is carried out on the web server. It does not require a computer to run the program; instead it only requires an Internet browser to setup input and display results.
