The frame "Settings" allows to introduce the basic settings of the program, such as standards and theories of analysis, the way of proving safety of a structure and individual coefficients of the analysis.
The programs not only contain the pre-defined basic Settings for individual countries, but also allow the user to create their own user-defined Settings, which can be subsequently used in all GEO5 programs.
The "Select" button allows to choose an already created setting from the "Settings list".
The "Settings Administrator" button opens the "Administrator" dialog window, which allows for viewing and modifying individual Setting. It is also possible to identify the visible settings in the Settings list. Data in the Settings administrator can be also exported and imported.
The "Add to the administrator" button allows to create user-defined Settings, which are subsequently added to the Settings administrator.
The "Modify" button enables a quick visualization and editing of the current Setting in the opened program. Modifying any of the parameters changes the title to "Input for the current task". Individual analyses are then performed with this local setting. Should we consider this setting as suitable also for other tasks, we add the setting into the "Settings administrator" by pressing the "Add to the administrator" button.
The "Input for the current task" setting is usually created when importing older data.
Program allows to specify a value of the minimum dimensioning pressure k (by checking the option "Consider the minimum dimensioning pressure"). For real structures showed that when considering cohesive soil behind the wall of the upper blocks of structure behaves problematically. For this reason, it is recommended to implement a value of k into the calculation for the case of backfill consisting of cohesive soils.
