The "Geometry"allows for specifying the pile cross-section (circular, circular variable, rectangle, I-type cross-section) based on the theory of analysis (specified in the " " tab). The selected shape with graphic hint is displayed in the central section of the frame. Input fields serve to specify dimensions of the selected cross-section.
Cross-sectional characteristics (area and moment of inertia) are computed by default, but they can also be specified (tubes, hollow cross-sections, steel I-profiles).
The bottom part of the frame serves to specify the pile location (pile lift out and the depth of finished grade). The pile lift out can also be negative - in such a case the pile is placed "in-ground".
For piles analyzed using themethod and , it is possible to account for the by selecting the specific type of pile or directly by inputting coefficients.
The program makes it possible tothe geometry of a structure in the *.DXF format.
