Safety factors


The safety factors must be set with reference to the selected standard. The software divides them in two categories: global verifications and composed verifications.


Global verifications

Sliding: the verification is the verification is carried out between the foundation and the first reinforcement (base)

Overturning: the overturning verification is performed with respect to the left vertex of the soil base

Limit load: limit load is calculated on the foundation soil and takes into account the depth of the bearing surface and the inclination (Geometrical data)


Internal global stability: are internal stability checks using the limit equilibrium methods to calculate the potential internal slip/sliding surfaces (Tieback and Compound).
