PileSuite - The Modeling Software for Deep Foundation Analysis and Design Solutions.
PileSuite is a powerful suite of software products for deep foundation analysis and design for both onshore and offshore projects. It contains four main software modules for nonlinear pile group analysis under general loading, laterally loaded single piles, axially loaded single piles and rock socket design.
Why choose PileSuite?
Integrated Deep Foundation Analysis and Design Software Suite
The combined software suite provides an integrated program interface which allows the users to undertake comprehensive analyses for various deep foundation design problems, such as Nonlinear Pile Group under General Loading (PileGroup), Laterally Loaded Single Piles (PileLAT), Axially Loaded Single Piles (PileAXL) and Rock Socket (PileROC).
PileLAT is a finite-element based program that analyzes the behaviour of laterally loaded piles (Single piles mainly under lateral loading) based on automatically generated nonlinear p-y curves for various soil and rock types.
PileAXL is a program that analyzes the behavior of single piles under axial loading applied at the pile head for both onshore and offshore engineering problems. It provides a wide range of analysis methods for determining ultimate shaft and end bearing resistance of both driven and bored piles for cohesive soils, cohesionless soils and rock.
PileROC is a program specially designed to predict the settlement for the piles socketed into rock under compressive axial loading and estimates ultimate and factored axial capacities for a range of socket lengths. It also provides lateral capacity checking of rock socket under lateral force and bending moment applied at the top.
PileGroup is a finite-element-based program which has been developed to calculate the deformations and loads of pile groups subject to general three-dimensional loadings such as axial and lateral forces and moments applied on the pile caps.
Nonlinear response of soils and rocks such as p-y curves for lateral loading, t-z and q-w curves for axial loading and t-θ curves for torsional loading are automatically generated by the program. The behavior of each pile under six components of loadings (forces and moments) is solved with an improved iterative approach to satisfy the equations of equilibrium, which results in the compatibility of geometry and equilibrium of forces between the applied external loads and the reactions of each pile head.
