Design and verification of retaining walls.

VERCAM is a programme for analysis and design of retaining walls, gravity walls and in concrete; it can evaluate the maximum safety factors both under normal and seismic conditions.

For reinforced concrete structures the programme can automatically calculate reinforcement bar dimensions and positioning as wall as verify the corresponding stress in the materials.

Verification is performed by determination of the safety factors to prevent both sliding (which is determined by resultant horizontal forces that stabilise and destabilise the wall) and toppling (which is determined by the equilibrium of the moments relative to the extreme of the ledge).

The maximum pressure exerted on the ground is determined by the global equilibrium of the wall.

The following cases are considered: single reinforcement on the inner side of the wall only and double reinforcement on both sides of the wall.

In conditions of seismic risk, verification is performed through a pseudo-static analysis.
