Earth pressure coefficent

Question:

I've been seeing tutorials on retaining structures on the slope module, and i noticed you never seem to touch the Earth pressure coefficient (Ko) on the ground material properties, why is that? what kind of analysis does the software does for earth pressure? Coulomb? Rankine? How do i know it's using the active, passive or steady state?
Answer:

Ko is for the initial stress of the ground, for construction stage analysis.
You should use Ground module for that.

Thanks and Regards,
