COMPUTATIONAL PACKAGE FOR PREDICTING PILE STRESS AND CAPACITY

A comprehensive and versaltile computer program for estimating driving stresses in piles, and load capacity of installed piles has been developed and named PILE. The program incorporates: (a) static analysis; (b) dynamic formulas; and (c) wave equation (WEAP) analysis. It is intended to provide the predictive capabilities needed by highway agencies in the design and construction of bridge piles. The report contains an intensive review of the state-of-the-art, as well as all the details of PILE, including example solutions. (Author)
