DC-Pit and DC-Underpinning with earthquake analysis

Analysis acc. to Eurocode 8-5 and SIA 267

With the programs DC-Pit and DC-Underpinning the analysis with earthquake loads is now completely available in the program group DC-Foundation.

The analysis is done acc. to Eurocode 8-5 resp. SIA 267 with earth pressure calculation acc. to Mononobe-Okabe. The verification of bearing capacity in DC-Underpinning is based on EC 8-5 appendix F.

To define the earthquake loads, the earthquake coefficients kh = ag/g and kv = avg/g are defined. In this case the program uses design situation BS-E automatically, with safety factors acc. to Eurocode 8-5.
