Analysis and design of elastically bedded piles


  • Consideration of linearly variable modulus of subgrade reaction
  • System input using absolute heights
  • Choice of analysis using either partial safety factors to DIN 1054:2005 or EC 7 or global safety factor (DIN 1054 old)
  • Steel analysis using EC 3
  • Consideration of active and passive berms
  • Consideration of active and passive bounded surcharges
  • Start depth for calculating passive earth pressure can be entered
  • Analysis using active earth pressure, at-rest ea th pressure and increased active earth pressure
  • Active earth pressure coefficients to DIN 4085 or user-defined values
  • Passive earth pressure coefficients to DIN 4085:2011, Streck, Caquot/Kerisel or user-defined values
  • Three-dimensional passive earth pressure to DIN 4085:2011-05, Weißenbach or DIN 4085:1987
  • Pile length optimisation
  • Automatic computation of second moment of area for square and bored piles
  • Pile and reinforcement design compliant with EC 2 and EC 3
  • Expandable database for steel sections and pipe sections
  • Choice of result presentation for moments, shear force, axial force, displacement or earth pressure
  • Consideration of seismic effects via altered earth pressure coefficients to EC 8 or EAU 1992
  • Reinforced concrete design and crack width analysis compliant with EC 2
  • Buckling analysis to DIN EN 1993-1-1 using 2nd order theory
  • Simulation of sheet pile sections corrosion
  • Analysis of sum V
  • Loading to ZTV-Lsw-88 in terms of M and H can be determined
  • Analysis results as output table
  • Interface to the GGU-STABILITY (slope stability nalysis)
  • 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 graphic
