To save time, LimitState:GEO allows you to import problem geometries from a DXF file, a feature which is especially useful when dealing with complex geometries. Here, the geometry for a retaining wall problem is imported before materials, supports and loading are applied. The model is here analysed assuming that the wall is formed from blocks which are effectively 'glued' together. However, the wall could easily be modelled as a series of blocks separated by frictional interfaces simply by applying a suitable material to the inter-block boundaries.
