Daystar RetainMaster

Retaining wall design that is quick, easy, and accurate is a top priority on any project. Daystar RetainMaster is all this and more.

Whether your retaining wall is poured concrete, masonry block, or both, Daystar RetainMaster can handle it. Poured concrete and concrete masonry can be used in the same wall and the wall thickness and reinforcing can be varied along the wall height.  In addition, the wall can be cantilevered or restrained.

Apply vertical point, horizontal point, moment, horizontal distributed, active and passive pressures, hydrostatic, surcharge, and soil slope loads to your walls. As you add loads, they appear on the wall, so you immediately know that they are where you want them.

Easily change the footing and wall dimensions, physical properties, and loads by simply double-clicking on them and entering the new information.

Take a look at our technical support and licensing.  We don't tie you down to one computer and we are always there to help.
