Soil Pressure Coefficients:

 

Ka (horiz) and Kp (Rankine) are computed automatically when using the Rankine method.  Kp (Rankine) is calculated as 1/Ka for a backfill slope of zero.

 

 

Lateral Loads:

 

Pile Pa, lbs: Total lateral force due to earth pressure.

 

Pile Pw, lbs: Total lateral force due to surcharge if applicable.

 

Pile Total lateral, lbs: Sum of Pa + Pw

 

 

Moments & Shears:

 

Depth to Max M, ft: Distance below lower grade to point of maximum moment in the pile.

 

Mmax in Pile (Service), ft-lbs: Maximum service level moment in the pile.

 

Vmax in Pile (Service), ft-lbs: Maximum service level shear in the pile.

 

Mmax in Pile (Factored), ft-lbs: Maximum factored level moment in the pile.  A factor of 1.6 is used.

 

Vmax in Pile (Factored), ft-lbs: Maximum factored level shear in the pile.  A factor of 1.6 is used.

 

 

Deflection:This is a conditional result.

 

If the pile has no tie-backs, the result will report the deflection at the top of the pile.

 

If the pile has tie-backs, the result will report the deflection at the top of the pile, as well as the extreme deflection and the location where the extreme deflection was found to occur.  Refer to the Solver Results tab for more information on how to locate the point of extreme deflection.

 

 

Embedment:

 

Reports the required pile embedment based upon allowable passive pressure, the specified safety factor and the applied active pressure.  The result is further itemized into the length of embedment that is considered effective for passive resistance and the portion that is neglected (if any).  Finally, the results report the embedment used for documentation purposes.

 

 

Reactions: This is a conditional result.

 

If the pile has no tie-backs, this area will be blank.

 

If the pile has tie-backs, the result will report the tie-back reactions and the base reaction as determined by the stiffness analysis.

 

 

Status Checks:

 

Reports Mu (or Ma), phiMn (or Mn/Omega), the ratio, and an OK/NG status.

 

Reports Vu (or (Va), phiVn (or Vn/Omega), the ratio, and an OK/NG status.

 

Reports an OK/NG status on the Embedment.
