Calculation of Load-Settlement Curve

One of the program outputs is a load diagram of the vertically loaded pile - load-settlement curve, which plots the pile vertical settlement as a function of the applied load.

The load-settlement curve is determined as a sum of the settlements due to forces at the pile base and on the shaft derived from graphs used to calculate the pile settlement. A typical example of the load-settlement curve appears in the following figure.
