  1. Frew (flexible retaining wall analysis) 

    1. How can I model the change from undrained soil to drained soil in the long term?
    2. The passive softening option in the analysis method dialog box appears to be locked and cannot be accessed.
    3. Is there any way to estimate the maximum displacement of the wall under a horizontal load?
    4. When we assign a Preload of 600kN/m to a Strut element at Stage 7, the program analyses and output a Strut load of 112kN/m only which is smaller than the Preload (600kN/m) at the same Stage !! Can you tell us how come the discrepancy between assigned Preload and the output Strut load?
    5. Occasionally analyses obtain bending moments below the wall and very erratic results e.g. for total stresses
  2. Slope (slope stability analysis) 

    1. Can you model retaining walls in Slope?
    2. In the Analysis Method table, which Method of Analysis should I use?
    3. In the Analysis Method dialog, which Factor of Safety should I use?
    4. How do you model an artesian water basin or perched water table in Slope?
    5. Does Slope consider the Morgenstern-Price or Spencer's methods for both force and moment equilibrium?
