Pile settlement acc. to OENORM B 1997-1-3

New approach in the programs DC-Pile and DC-Pilegroup

For analysis acc. to OENORM B 1997-1-3 for Austria, 7 settlement-dependent values for end bearing are available (instead of 3 acc. to Rec. on Piles). There is no settlement value ssg* like in Rec. on Piles, from which the full skin friction is active.

Now the full skin friction is applied not from a settlement of 0, but acc. to OENORM B 4440 from a settlement of 1 cm for cohesive and 2 cm for non-cohesive soils. This way, there is a settlement > 0 for loads smaller than the full skin friction.

This approach is now available as well in DC-Pilegroup, in addition to DC-Pile.
