Excel file implementing proposed procedure
Unzip this document to obtain a procedure to assess laterally loaded pile group capacity, according to cited reference.
Note that such procedure is not too much optimized, i.e. a simple search procedure is implemented. For information contact authors.
Options to include partial safety factors according to Eurocode or NTC (Italian code) are also included.
The Excel file (with macros) is protected, however you may remove protection using 7ICEGE password.
Comments are very welcome

- improvements in slab analysis and output results for CLAY materials
Minor bugs fixed.
Install it from the following link:
A new intermediate version (19.0.4) will be released very soon.
It also includes some new features, such as the possibility to modify spring stiffness as per Users requests. Such option may improve movement prediction in clays.
The advice by some international Users who encouraged us to include this option is warmly acknowledged.
Download xgraph.dll and copy into ParatiePlus 19 folder. Existing dll will be overwritten
This action should amend some possible crash conditions occuring using piping inspector tool.
