Load-Settlement Curve

The Load-settlement curve describes the variation of vertical load Q as a function of the pile settlement.

By default, the program offers the construction of this curve for the maximal value of settlement equal to 25 mm. This magnitude, however, can be adjusted up to the value of 100 mm before running the calculation. An example showing a typical shape of the load-settlement curve appears in the figure.
