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
