Software for laterally loaded piles

Software for laterally loaded piles

Hi, just want to hear your opinions for best options for software for the analysis of laterally loaded piles. I know that the most common software is LPILE, but just wondering if there are other better options/alternatives. So far, I have been doing manual calculations and also found good spreadsheets in this forum, but for some special projects I need to provide deflections, shear, moments, etc. graphs that may be easier to generate using software. Thanks.

See the second post in this thread: http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=404404

The first two spreadsheets linked to are what I'd go for. However, you should make your own checks of the software to ensure the software is fit for your purposes.

LRJ, thanks , that was very helpful...

Check out AllPile from CivilTech Software. It analyzes piles for vertical and lateral loads. The lateral analysis is based on COM624, like LPile.

Thanks for the responses. Do you know if any DOT has a software for lateral analysis? Thanks again.
