Software

The following software will be useful in a preliminary design but should in no way be used for final design. The technical and marketing department of ArcelorMittal Commercial RPS will provide you the necessary technical assistance to lead your project to a great success and will help you if you encounter problems using the software.

 

AMRetain™


‘AMRetain™’ is a new design software developed solely for the design of steel sheet piling structures using the ArcelorMittal range of steel sheet piles. AMRetain is quite a versatile design software, based on a ‘Subgrade Reaction Model’ (also called ‘Soil Structure Interaction Model’, or SSIM). This SSIM is an excellent compromise between quite simple design methods like the ‘Limit Equilibrium method’ (LEM) and more complex ones like the ‘Finite ‘Elements Method’ (FEM).

Note that not all steel sheet piles may be available in all steel grades, and that our sheet pile range is liable to change without prior notice. Please contact us for updated information.  
 

Durability

sheet piles, durability, software
'Durability' is a software that simplifies the task of the engineer when it comes to choose a steel sheet pile section taking into account the service life of the structure. It determines the section properties of the sheet piles due to the loss of steel thickness in different environments. It also calculates the safety factor on the steel in case the analysis is based on the allowable stress design (ASD) with a global safety factor. The short document 'Durability 2.4.pdf' contains some useful information about the software: description of its capabilities, main assumptions made, and how to use it. Additionally, you will find a design example at the end of the document.

Download Durability 2.5 (version 2.5.0.3, September 2013, database September 2013)

A new version based on 'Eurocode 3 - Part 5' is under development. Please contact us if you are interested in testing the first beta-version: technical department.

HZM™-AZ® Stresses

sheet piles, durability, software
Stress analysis for the HZM™ / AZ® combined wall system, based on the 'allowable stress design' method. It allows the user to easily select a solution based on the bending moments and chosen safety factor on the steel stresses. The user can also prepare a basic material list for a straight retaining wall. Additional feature: calculates the wall properties of any combination with an AZ® infill sheet pile, ranging from the AZ® 12-770 to AZ® 28-700N.

VLoad®

sheet piles, durability, software
'VLoad' is a new software to design the capping beam of steel sheet piles submitted to significant vertical and/or horizontal loads. It was developed to help consulting engineers with the design of cost-effective concrete capping beams, including the steel reinforcement, and based on the German ‘Zulassung’, a technical approval, granted by the ‘Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik’ (DIBt), which complies with the new European standard EN 1992.

From a practical point of view, the design based on the German Technical Approval could be applied in any country that uses similar design codes, but it is the responsibility of the design engineer to verify any technical and legal implications.
