EnSoft LPile 2018 v10.02 [Size: 26.6 MB] ... LPILE is a special-purpose and internationally recognized computer program based on rational procedures for analyzing a pile under lateral loading using the p-y method. LPILE solves the differential equation for a beam-column using a finite difference approach. The program computes deflection, bending moment, shear force and soil response over the length of the pile. Nonlinear lateral load-transfer from the foundation to the soil is modeled using p-y curves generated internally using published recommendations for various types of soils, or user-inputted p-y curves. Specialized procedures are also available for computing p-y curves for layered soils and rocks. With the first release dating back to 1986, LPILE has continuously been developed and improved to meet user needs and incorporate state-of-the-art literature and procedures.

Multi-Layered Soil Media: Choose from variety of built-in load-transfer (p-y) curves for modeling complex soil behavior under lateral loading. Some of the available curves include soft clay, stiff clay with or without free water, sand, liquefied sand, rock, Piedmont residual soil, cemented c-φ soil, Loess silt, elastic subgrade, and API soft clay with user-defined J. Alternatively, import your own user-generated p-y curves for analysis.
Piles and Shafts: Model piles as either vertical or battered and consider sloping ground surfaces by adjusting internal modification factors. Specify boundary conditions at pile-head as free-head, pinned or fixed with sway, elastically-restrained with or without sway. See response of pile under lateral or bending moment, or specify lateral displacement or rotation at pile-head.
Modifiers: Specify user-defined multipliers to adjust for pile group effects in closely-spaced piles or to reduce pile response in liquefied layers for sustained long-term loading or seismic conditions. Consider soil-layering effects by adjusting p-y curves. Specify nonlinear resistance curves to consider tip shear resistance provided at the base of large diameter drilled shafts or short piles.

Gopal Madabhushi, Jonathan Knappett ... Pile foundations are the most common form of deep foundations that used both onshore and offshore to transfer large superstructure loads into competent soil strata. This book provides many case histories of failure of pile foundations due to earthquake loading and soil liquefaction. Based on the observed case histories, the possible mechanisms of failure of the pile foundations are postulated. The book also deals with the additional loading attracted by piles in liquefiable soils due to lateral spreading of sloping ground. Recent research at Cambridge forms the backbone of this book with the design methodologies being developed directly based on quantified centrifuge test results and numerical analysis. The book provides designers and practicing civil engineers with a sound knowledge of pile behaviour in liquefiable soils and easy-to-use methods to design pile foundations in seismic regions. For graduate students and researchers, it brings together the latest research findings on pile foundations in a way that is relevant to geotechnical practice.

A basal reinforced piled embankment consists of a reinforced embankment on a pile foundation. The reinforcement consists of one or more horizontal layers of geosynthetic reinforcement installed at the base of the embankment.

A basal reinforced piled embankment can be used for the construction of a road or a railway when a traditional construction method would require too much construction time, affect vulnerable objects nearby or give too much residual settlement, making frequent maintenance necessary.

This publication is a guideline (CUR226) for the design of basal reinforced piled embankments. The guideline covers the following subjects: a survey of the requirements and the basic principles for the structure as a whole; some instructions for the pile foundation and the pile caps; design rules for the embankment with the basal geosynthetic reinforcement; extensive calculation examples; finite element calculations; construction details and management and maintenance of the piled embankment. The guideline includes many practical tips. The design guideline is based on state-of-the-art Dutch research, which was conducted in cooperation with many researchers from different countries.

The use of piled raft foundations has significantly increased over the last few decades since taking into account the contribution of the raft to the overall bearing capacity enabled the engineers to design much more efficient piled foundations which perform as well as the conventionally designed ones with significantly lower number of piles. However, although many researchers have been studying on this subject, a user-friendly design procedure is still not available in the literature. This book, therefore, offers two different simple methods to estimate the settlements of the piled raft foundations. Utilizing the charts provided in this book, the settlement of a piled raft foundation can be obtained by simple hand calculations in the first method while it can be calculated by computerized analysis in the second one. This book should be especially useful for the geotechnical experts and/or engineers looking for a simplified method for the analysis of piled rafts and academicians who are interested in thesubject.

Ensoft LPile 2015 v8.03 [Size: 24 MB] ... LPILE is a special-purpose program based on rational procedures for analyzing a pile under lateral loading using the p-y method. LPILE solves the differential equation for a beam-column using nonlinear lateral load-transfer (p-y) curves. The program computes deflection, bending moment, shear force and soil response over the length of the pile.

As an option, components of the stiffness matrix at the pile head may be computed internally by LPILE so users can incorporate basic soil-structure interaction in their super-structure analyses. Another option from LPILE provides graphs of pile-head deflections for various pile lengths, to help users with optimum pile penetrations (for lateral response). Nonlinear lateral load-transfer from the foundation to the soil is modeled using p-y curves generated internally using published recommendations for various types of soils. Special procedures are programmed for computing p-y curves for layered soils and for rocks. Alternatively, the user can enter manually any other externally generated ip-y curves. Five types of pile-head boundary conditions may be selected, and the structural properties of the pile can vary as a function of depth. LPILE has analytical features to compute the nonlinear moment-curvature relationships and nominal moment capacity of a pile’s section based on specified pile dimensions and nonlinear material properties. Optionally, the user may enter nonlinear moment-curvature relationships to be used in place of the internally-generated values. LPILE provides several design recommendations for rebar arrangements in drilled shafts.

The complexities of designing piles for lateral loads are manifold as there are many forces that are critical to the design of big structures such as bridges, offshore and waterfront structures and retaining walls. The loads on structures should be supported either horizontally or laterally or in both directions and most structures have in common that they are founded on piles. To create solid foundations, the pile designer is driven towards finding the critical load on a certain structure, either by causing overload or by causing too much lateral deflection.

This second edition of Reese and Van Impe’s course book explores and explains lateral load design and procedures for designing piles and pile groups, accounting for the soil resistance, as related to the lateral deflection of the pile. It addresses the analysis of piles of varying stiffness installed into soils with a variety of characteristics, accounting for the axial load at the top of the pile and for the rotational restraint of the pile head. The presented method using load-transfer functions is currently applied in practice by thousands of engineering offices in the world. Moreover, various experimental case design examples, including the design of an offshore platform pile foundation are given to complement theory. The rich list of relevant publications will serve the user into further reading.

Designed as a textbook for senior undergraduate/graduate student courses in pile engineering, foundation engineering and related subjects, this set of book and CD-ROM will also benefit professionals in civil and mining engineering and in the applied earth sciences.
