  <dc:description>The official tool homepage for the PileGroupTool is here

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
  <dc:description>The SimCenter is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1612843)</dc:description>
