When it comes to laterally-loaded pile design software, Alp makes things simple. This laterally loaded pile analysis software models soil shear failure and non-linear soil behaviour, calculating deflection down the pile together with moments and shear forces within the pile.
Choose options to suit any piling project
Alp is a flexible piece of software designed for demanding projects. Users can tailor the options to suit, and see and share results in a clear graphical output.
The software is simple to set up. Alp represents the pile as a series of elastic beam elements and the soil as a series of independent springs. Alp handles soil properties varying with depth, and users can specify water pressures as hydrostatic or piezometric. They can also Apply lateral loads or bending moments at any location down the pile. The same goes for full, lateral or bending moment restraint. Displacements can be imposed in the body of soil surrounding the pile, the top of which can be above ground level.
Designed with busy engineers in mind, Alp is already used to analyse the soil structure interaction of laterally-loaded piles on projects around the world.
