Analysis and design of elastically bedded piles.


  • • Choice of analysis using either partial safety factors to DIN 1054:2010, EC 7, Austrian Standard ÖNORM EN 1997-1 or global safety factors (DIN 1054 old)
  • Consideration of linearly variable modulus of subgrade reaction
  • Steel analysis using EC 3
  • Expandable database for steel sections and pipe sections
  • Simulation of sheet pile sections corrosion
  • Reinforced concrete design and crack width analysis compliant with EC 2
  • Buckling analysis to DIN EN 1993-1-1 using 2nd order theory Analysis of sum V
  • System input using absolute heights
  • Soil properties can be selected from an expandable database of common soils 
  • Loading according to M EBGS-Lsw 2018 can be determined
  • Consideration of active and passive berms 
  • Consideration of active and passive bounded surcharges
  • Analysis using active earth pressure, at-rest earth pressure and increased active earth pressure
  • Active earth press. coefficients to DIN 4085
  • Passive earth pressure calculation to DIN 4085:2017, Streck, Caquot/Kerisel, Culmann/Vogt or Culmann
  • Three-dimensional passive earth pressure to DIN 4085:2011, Weißenbach, Vogt or DIN 4085:2011 planar slip surfaces
  • Start depth for calculating passive earth pressure can be entered
  • Pile length optimisation
  • Automatic computation of second moment of area for square and bored piles
  • Consideration of seismic effects via altered earth pressure coefficients to EC 8 
  • Interface to the GGU-STABILITY (slope stability analysis)
  • Choice of result presentation for moments, shear force, axial force, displacement or earth pressure
  • Analysis results as output table
  • Adopted standard, program name and version can be included in the General legend
  • User-designed output sheet
  • Print or copy screen sections, e.g. for transfer to a word processor
  • Integrated Mini-CAD system for additional annotation of graphics

Current updates & changes

  • 8.16 (03.04.2020)
    • Import of files from GGU-DOLPHIN Version 1.15
  • 8.15 (31.03.2020)
    • The designation for absolute heights can be freely defined.
  • 8.14 (26.03.2020)
    • Product management
  • 8.13 (11.03.2020)
    • Vertical capacity: The end resistance qb,k can now also be averaged directly using the corresponding table values without averaging qc or cu,k. This is advantageous if there are cohesionless and cohesive soils in the pile base zone of influence.


  • 8.12 (27.01.2020)
    • Water pressure on pile base will be taken into account.
