The release said that the new software is based on state-of-the-practice design methods and can determine the optimal reinforcement configuration for simple geometries using an interactive approach.
The software program can assist engineers in determining the reinforcement requirements for reinforced soil slopes and walls.
According to the press release: “The designer or engineer may select the appropriate TenCate reinforcement geosynthetic and facing system to use in their design and [to] analyze the potential failure modes for the design cross section.”
The release noted that the design standards that MiraSlope can utilize in North America are: FHWA and BS8006-95; in Europe, EBGEO 2010 based on EC7 and BS8006-95; and in Asia, FHWA and BS8006-95.
