ReSSA+ includes significant modifications of ReSSA(3.0). FHWA-HIF-17-004 (Download) and Leshchinsky et al. (2017) (Download) provide all the details including instructive example problems. ReSSA+ allows for a convenient two-stage analysis which may lead to optimal design of geosynthetic-reinforced complex structure. It does not distinguish between ‘slopes’ and ‘walls’ but rather uses a unified limit state approach which uses established limit equilibrium analysis
MSEW(3.0) is an interactive program for the design and analysis of mechanically stabilized earth walls. It follows the design guidelines of AASHTO98/Demo 82, AASHTO02/FHWA-NHI-00-043, AASHTO07, or NCMA97/98. Note that AASHTO98/02 is based on allowable stress design (ASD) whereas AASHTO07 is based on load resistance factor design (LRFD).
GeoCoPS (3.0) is an interactive program for the design of geosynthetic tubes. For a given problem, the geometry of the tube and the circumferential and longitudinal required strength of the encapsulating geosynthetic are produced. The computations account for reduction factors related to seam strength, durability, creep and installation damage. Results are obtained by solving a differential equation subjected to design constraints.
