I would like to experiment with how different factors influence the driving of a pile, for my own personal curiosity. I do not have access to GRLWEAP. Do any DOTs/Universities have a free version of comparable software? Or is this a completely proprietary analysis tool?


I didn't try it but There is demo version here:


Our company purchased the software some years ago and it was not too expensive, if you are really interested on it, you would want to buy it.


There's a free DOS WEAP program called WEAP87 that was developed for FHWA floating around. It's an old DOS program so it's not user friendly and you will have to run a DOS emulation program to run it. It has a full manual written for it in great detail.

It was written in the 70's so it was originally meant for punch card input. So there is an input program and a program to run the analysis. I have been able to successfully run it and get results comparable to a CAPWAP analysis done on a PDA.


Thank you. I will look into those options.
