The presence of fillers on the back of the wall and in the foundation can be assigned from the Fill panel visible on the right of the work area.


Upstream filling: To define the filling of the area behind the wall, it is necessary to assign the weight per unit volume, the angle of shear resistance that of earth-wall friction.

Valley filling: To insert a fill on the valley side foundation, the weight per unit volume of the material, the shear resistance angle and the height must be assigned.


The geotechnical parameters of characterization of the two fillings are necessary for the evaluation of the stresses on the foundation and on the shelf in elevation.



Fill assignment environment


The downstream filling does not contribute to the passive thrust, but contributes to the determination of the limit load.
