Analysis of the vertical bearing capacity of a pile group can be performed for:
- cohesionless soil (analysis for drained conditions)
- cohesive soil (analysis for undrained conditions)
The verification is performed for the vertical load only. Load due to moments and shear forces is not considered. To account for horizontal actions of the pile group calls for choosing the spring method in the frame "Settings".
The analytical methods also allow for calculating the pile group settlement.
