In the program DC-Pile, now lateral pressure as a distributed load over the length of the pile is available. Up to 10 depth sections from-to may be used with constant permanent or variable loads, which act perpendicular to the pile axis.
These loads are considered for the analysis of the pile with elastic bedding and automatic adaptation of the bedding stress to the passive earth pressure.
In addition, a new pile type circular driven pile from reinforced concrete, e.g. Franki pile, is supported. For this pile type, a pile foot with larger diameter is available, which is drawn as a round foot in contrast to the conical foot for bore piles.
