Typical Pile Group Analysis in DeepFND 2020

DeepFND is the new standard for Deep Foundation Design

This is the Deep Foundation program that the industry has been missing for years! We are now bringing together both structural and geotechnical knowledge in a complete deep foundation package.

"The program is great and I have been using frequently!", Steve Gencorelli, P.E., Vice President of Engineering & Sales, DANBRO Distributors

DeepFND Modules: Choose what is right for you!

A) Standard Version: Single pile analysis

B) Pile group module: Analyze pile groups with concrete caps but does not consider effect of soil below pile cap

C) Pile raft module: Analyze pile rafts (groups) and also consider the combined effect of soil below the raft.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Pile Cap Analysis: The pile cap analysis considers the non-linear analysis pile response. Users can define any shaped pile cap, and consider soil variation at any point. Interaction effects can be considered with various methods, including user defined p reduction factors.

Pile Raft Analysis: The pile raft analysis builds on the pile cap module by enabling the user to consider the contribution of soil pressures under the pile cap. Non-linear soil springs can be considered. Results have been calibrated against finite element simulations.

How is the pile cap modeled? The pile cap is modeled as a series of plate elements.

How many loads can you specify? Unlimited number of loads.

What type of loads can be included? Axial, moment, lateral, and distributed loads.

Seismic accelerations? Seismic accelerations can be considered on the pile cap weigth.
