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

Release 19.0.4 almost ready

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.
