ABUTMENT ON PILES - ANALYSIS

File name is DC-S61. Computer Program. Given the physical dimensions of the cross section of a cantilever type abutment on piles, and the loads from the superstructure, approach slab and backfill behind the wall, the program will determine the required reinforcement for, and thickness of the stem at any pre-determined section. Nine loading combinations may be used. Input consists of the basic physical dimensions of the abutment, gravity and lateral loads, pile values, number of rows and pitch of piles, batter of piles, allowable stresses and loading combination desired. Output includes factor of safety against overturning, total horizontal and vertical loads, toe and heel pile loads, horizontal force per foot of abutment to be resisted by piles, allowable horizontal force each pile resists in bending, depth and reinforcement for shear and moment in the toe, heel and stem.
