Personally, I favor the Enercalc package since it offers the greatest
flexibility to change defaults. Therefore, if you do some forensic work, it
can be of tremendous value in helping find the cause of certain failures. I
used for this purpose on three occasions and the follow-up testing on the
walls matched my findings as vertical steel was moved which caused failures
in the wall sections.

We reviewed several last year and bought RetainPro by Hugh Brooks.
(www.enercalc.com). It was the commercial package that best met our needs.
had the best technical capabilities at about the same price as others. No
package had the best of everything. Daystar was second in our rankings.

Anyone have a retaining wall program that "does it
all" that they would recommend?
