    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The official tool homepage for the PileGroupTool is &lt;a href="https://simcenter.designsafe-ci.org/learning-tools/pile-group-tool/"&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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&amp;#39;s response to changes of the following parameters:&lt;/p&gt;

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

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Presented results include&lt;/strong&gt;:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;lateral displacement of all piles&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;moment and shear diagrams for each&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;vertical soil stresses&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;ultimate strength and stiffness parameters for the employed &lt;em&gt;p-y&lt;/em&gt; springs&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;New in this release&lt;/strong&gt;:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Fixes a scaling bug where parameters were inaccessible on smaller displays&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Fixes an update bug when forces or applied displacements were changed using the up/down arrows in DoubleSpinBoxes&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Adds axis labels and units to the result plots&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Removes the &amp;quot;hints&amp;quot; section to better work on smaller displays&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;adds a Quick Tips section and pop-up to the Help menu. This replaces and expands the removed hints section&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;minor updates to the UI&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;some minor performance updates internally.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;</description>
