DC-Pilegroup version 3.00

Improved analysis method

With program version 3.00 DC-Software presents a new analysis method for the program DC-Pilegroup:

  • Improved consideration of the frame effect for rigidly connected piles
  • The horizontal deformations at the pile heads match better between piles and slab and between the different piles
  • Higher bending moments may result in the piles, because the effect of the fixed support from the frame effect is considered better
  • In these case it should be considered if the full fixity can be effective or if the pile support should be applied as hinged
