MSE walls using STABL MSE walls using STABL cdstan (Civil/Environmental) (OP) 14 Apr 09 15:14 Does anyone use STABL and how can I manipulate the program to deal with MSE walls? RE: MSE walls using STABL bucknell06 (Civil/Environmental) 15 Apr 09 11:13 Assuming you want to look at global stability only, you can use failure surface limits to cause the failure to occur outside of reinforced zone. RE: MSE walls using STABL jdonville (Geotechnical) 15 Apr 09 20:54 cdstan,Assume the MSE mass as a rigid block for global stability. Use limits as stated above to block failure surfaces passing through the MSE mass, or assign high strength parameters to the MSE mass.Jeff RE: MSE walls using STABL moe333 (Geotechnical) 15 Apr 09 21:45 A potential failure surface for global stability can pass through one or more of the reinforcement layers. You would need to use a program that can model the reinforcement layers if you want to do a thorough evaluation. There are some out there that are pretty reasonably priced.
