SOIL BEARING ABUTMENT ANALYSIS

File name is DC - S56. Computer Program. Given the physical dimensions of the cross section of a cantilever type soil bearing abutment, and the loads from the superstructure, approach slab and backfill behind the wall, the program will determine the required reinforcement for, and thickness of the stem at any predetermined section. Nine loading combinations may be used. Input consists of the basic physical dimensions of the abutment, gravity and lateral loads, hydrostatic forces, allowable stresses and loading combinations desired. Output includes factors of safety against overturning and sliding, effective footing width, required reinforcement and depth for moment and shear at stem and base.
