Innovative Geotechnics develops PileGroup. This construction program is specifically designed for geotechnical engineering. PileGroup is based on finite-element that examines the behavior of pile groups in three-dimensional loading – axial and horizontal forces, bending moments and torsion on the pile cap. This user-friendly and robust program highlights the most vital features in pile group analysis like nonlinear axial, lateral and torsional behavior of different soil and rock materials, battered piles and group reduction factors as a result of pile-soil-pile interaction inside the group.
The interface of PileGroup can be easily operated and the users can easily generate the analysis input file for pile groups under general loading with a logical workflow. It also delivers the aspect of ground profile and 3D displaying of deflection, shear force and bending moment distributions toward individual piles inside the group.
The users can collaboratively enter pile section, pile head positions, pile lengths and pile batters for pile group analysis issues. The entire procedure is uncomplicated, speedy and the users will be able to examine and update if required.
The external loadings (vertical loads Fy, horizontal loads Fx and Fz, rotational moment My, bending moments Mx and Mz) is used at any location on the pile cap and multiple sets of loadings are referred by the users. The program will compute the corresponding loading at the origin in the analysis.
Comprehensive analysis results for individual pile with the group like deflection, shear force, bending moment and mobilized soil reaction are blueprinted against the pile length and demonstrated in the result output dialog with the help of graphs along with the soil layer geometry. The users will be able to view, copy and print the results toward the particular pile/piles.
3D displaying of different pile group analysis results can be accessed in PileGroup. It facilitates the users to zoom, rotate and transfer the exposed results smoothly in three-dimensional space.
The users will be able to see the distorted shape of pile group as soon as the analysis is finished successfully. Wide-ranging displaying options like model contour, pile and pile cap color, local and global axes, shape scaling factor and pile numbering can be accessed in PileGroup for the users to distinguish the 3D graphical presentation.
