The demands of infrastructure development worldwide are one reason why we are faced with challenging engineering problems requiring competent solutions to reinforced soil structures (RSS). Maccaferri, which has more than a century of geotechnical solutions on record (firstly with mass gravity gabion walls, and secondly with reinforced soil structures) therefore developed custom software to suit all the requirements of their engineers around the world - Mac.St.A.R.S. (Maccaferri Stability Analysis of Reinforced Soils). This software was developed in the late 90s in collaboration with Studio Geotecnico Italiano and Autosoft. Mac.St.A.R.S. was validated against the current best software on the market before it was released for use.
