Vertical Bearing Capacity - Analytical Solution
The "Vertical bearing capacity" frame serves to verify the vertical bearing capacity of a pile. Several analyses can be carried out in the frame. The verification can be performed for individual loads, or the program locates the most critical one (can be selected from a combo list). The frame appearance changes depending on the analysis type in the frame "Settings".
The analysis is performed based on the theory defined in the "Piles" tab. This tab serves to choose the verification methodology (EN 1997-1, factor of safety, limit states).
Calculation of the pile vertical bearing capacity by using the analytical solution is performed for:
- drained conditions (CSN 73 1002, Effective stress method, NAVFAC DM 7.2, CTE-DB SE-C)
- undrained conditions (Tomlinson, NAVFAC DM 7.2, CTE-DB SE-C)
The "In detail" button opens the dialog window containing detailed listing of the verification results.
The analysis results are displayed in the right part of the desktop. Visualization of results can be adjusted in the frame "Drawing Settings".
