Summary:
The automation of retaining structure selection and design by utilizing artificial intelligence tools is presented herein. The study involved the development of a microcomputer based expert system, RESTEX (REtaining STructure EXpert). The modules of the expert systems RETAININGEARTH, with M.1 knowledge base, and REFLEXYS have been updated and the resulting RESTEX modules are written in C using Exsys Professional for high speed and efficient utilization of memory. RESTEX is an interactive menu-driven system consisting of modules for Structure Selection, Preliminary Design, Soils Classification, Stability Analysis, and Reinforcement Design. The system is capable of performing selection, analysis, and design of gravity walls, cantilever walls, counterfort walls, reinforced earth, gabion, cantilever and anchored sheet piles.
