Pile Group

This program is used to analyze a pile group (pile raft foundation with a rigid pile cap) using both spring method (FEM), or analytical solutions. Both floating piles and piles fixed into subsoil can be considered.

Main Features

  • Analytical solutions and Spring method 3D (FEM) analysis:
  • Analysis of vertical bearing capacity of a pile group of in cohesive soil as a rigid earth block according to FHWA standards
  • Analysis of vertical bearing capacity of a group of piles in cohesionless soil (NAVFAC DM 7.2, Effective stress, CSN 73 1002)
  • Reduction of vertical bearing capacity of a pile group (UFC 3-220-01A, La Barré, Seiler-Keeney)
  • Settlement analysis of a pile group in a cohesive soil as a settlement of substitute foundation
  • Settlement analysis of a pile group in cohesionless soil according to Poulos (load-settlement curve)
  • Analysis of rotation, deformation and displacement of a rigid pile cap
  • An arbitrary number of load cases and their combinations
  • Hinged or fixed connection between piles in a group and a rigid pile cap
  • Floating, rested or fixed piles into the foundation subsoil
  • Analysis of group of micropiles
  • Possibility to introduce inclined piles and general shape of a rigid pile cap
  • An automatic post-calculation of springs along the pile length piles from soil properties
  • Possibility to introduce both horizontal and vertical springs along the pile length
  • Distribution of displacements and internal forces along each pile in a group
  • Dimensioning of a pile reinforcement according to EN 1992-1 (EC 2), BS, PN, IS, AS, ACI, GB, CSN, SNiP
