Important correction in DC-Pit and DC-Pile

Update of the programs is recommended urgently

In DC-Pit since version 7.67 and in DC-Pile since version 8.59 (December 2020) it could be possible that in an analysis acc. to Eurocode 7 incorrect safety factors for passive earth pressure were used.

See the values in the tables "Partial safety factors for calculation of the wall length (GEO)" resp. "Partial factors for section forces (STR)", where the correct values (if Design Situations are used) for DS-P, DS-T, DS-A and DS-T/A should appear as 1.40, 1.30, 1.20 and 1.25. If the values are not correct after new calculation, please select the desired analysis standard again.
