With the latest version 8.6, Allan Block has upgraded its software package, AB Walls 2007, to simplify segmental retaining wall design while providing accuracy and structural stability. Included in the design tool is new methodology, e.g., Internal Compound Stability and distribution of internal seismic forces, from National Concrete Masonry Association’s anticipated Segmental Retaining Wall Design Manual – Third Edition.
The software continues to allow designers to generate elevation, plan and multiple cross-sectional views of a retaining wall project. Additionally, it provides more design options, making AB Walls 2007 Version 8.6 the most flexible design tool available for engineering segmental retaining walls, product developers note. Available only on CD, AB Walls 2007 version 8.6 comes with supporting documents, such as AB Engineering Manual and Tech Sheets that explain the changes. Û www.allanblock.com
