Pile foundation design

Our case studies show how the use of Repute in pile group analysis and design results in a more realistic picture of the group deformation response and load distribution between piles. The basic importance of Repute non-linear soil model to examine the load distribution in groups of piles is that it has the desirable effect of avoiding exaggeration of stresses at corner piles (as predicted by linear elastic models), thereby reducing consequent high loads and moments. Further Repute, by taking into account the continuous nature of pile-soil interaction, removes the limitations and uncertainties of t-z and p-y curve approaches (which rely on empirical parameters such as the modulus of subgrade reaction) and provides a simple design tool based on conventional soil parameters.
