The official tool homepage for the PileGroupTool is on https://simcenter.designsafe-ci.org/learning-tools/pile-group-application/

The SimCenter Pile-Group Tool provides a dynamic interface to study the behavior of a pile or pile-group in layered soil. It allows the user to interactively (and nearly instantly) observe the system's response to changes of the following parameters:

  • soil structure (up to 3 layers of variable thickness) and soil properties
  • position of the ground water table
  • pile stiffness, embedment length, connection type to the pile cap
  • number of piles in the group (one to three piles)
  • the applied horizontal force at the pile cap (push-over analysis)

Presented results include:

  • lateral displacement of all piles
  • moment and shear diagrams for each
  • vertical soil stresses
  • ultimate strength and stiffness parameters for the employed p-y springs

New in this release:

  • fixes an issue opening model files created by the latest release

The SimCenter is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1612843)
