Hi There, first post to the site. I do quite a bit of retaining wall/bulkhead design in coastal South Carolina. I typically like to use composites; however, this is southern yellow pine country and it's cheap. A standard timber wall along the coast here is 2 or 3 by 6 "sloppy v" timber lagging, wales, and soldier pile with timber pile deadmen. If you are unfamiliar, sloppy V is a vertically driven timber "sheet" with a "v" groove. SPW911 isn't any good for designing this type of arrangement. My question is: Will Civil Tech's Shoring Suite be a benefit to designing this type of arrangement? I know that most timber lagging design is done with the timbers horizontal, I'm looking at a vertical arrangement. Thanks
