With this option the apparent earth pressure diagram is determined as the product of the active soil thrust times a user defined factor. The factor should range typically from 1.1 to 1.4 depending on the user preferences and the presence of a permanent structure. The resulting horizontal thrust is then redistributed as a trapezoidal pressure diagram where the top and bottom triangular pressure heights are defined as a percentage of the excavation height.
