The program DC-Pile/Npw as an addition to the program DC-Pile is used for the analysis of piles in slopes, e.g. for noise protection walls, acc. to the approach by Vogt resp. bulletin ZTV-Lsw 06.
Now the bulletin M EBGS-Lsw 2018 is supported including the verification of vertical forces:
- Mobilisation of the vertical component of the passive earth pressure (verification against lifting), with reduction of the wall friction angle delta if required
- Transfer of vertical loads into the ground (verification against downwelling), with lengthening of the pile if required
