SmartSlope joins Vespa2

We are happy to announce that SmartSlope has join the list of Blocks available in Vespa2. SmartSlope is a living retaining wall, that replaces traditional, impervious concrete with a vertical garden while maintaining structural functionality. When the planted cells have grown out, the wall becomes a landscape.

Vespa2 is Here

New Vespa2 has all of the features of functionality of the original version, with some very important upgrades. Vespa2 includes a detailed, hand-calculation style PDF report that allows the user or reviewer to step through every equation and result in the analysis. Currently, the “Equation Report” is included for NCMA, Reinforced, Conventional and No-Fines Concrete Analysis (Static and Seismic), but will soon be updated to include AASHTO 2015. Another key features incorporated into Vespa2 is the automatic BDF and GDF File updates. The BDF (Block Definition File) and GDF (Geogrid Definition Files) will now be automatically updated with all of the latest Block and Geogrid information.
