Enter Design Parameter information. This can be accomplished by entering all appropriate geometry data into the Manual Entry boxes provided
This can also be done by entering the data within the Excel Template previously downloaded per the instructions and definitions provided. Once the data is entered, select the “Upload Data” button at the upper right corner of the geometry input section. This will automatically populate the Design Parameter section. The data can then be modified with any manual adjustments
In order for the backfill to be properly calculated for abutment situations, it is necessary for the variable “a” (distance from back of panels to back face of end bent) to have a value within the design parameters.
Use the Design Set box in the Geometry Input table to indicate where specific Design Set parameters occur along the MSE Wall. Indicate the design set number at the column on the right-hand side of the Geometry Input Manual Entry. The program is set-up so that the design set will be applicable for the subsequent stations until another design set number is selected. Design Set labels will appear on the MSE Wall Elevation.
