ASDIP Retain Question

ASDIP Retain Question

ASDIP Retain Question

Afternoon all,

I am trying out ASDIP retain, trying to get some sanity checks on my own calculation sheet I'm building for a cantilever retaining wall. But there is one resisting force stated in the ASDIP detailed output that I'm not understanding. It's called "Backfill Pav" and the force acts at the edge of the heel, I can't imagine what it is, any ideas? I've attached a screenshot for clarity.

I'd appreciate any help!

I guess Pressure Active Vertical, but have never used this software.
