is a Windows-based analysis program that handles virtually all
types of piles, including steel pipes, H-piles, pre-cast
concrete piles, auger-cast piles, drilled shafts, timber piles,
jetted piles, tapered piles, piers with bell, micropile (minipile),
and uplift anchors.
One of the major
advantages All-Pile has over other pile software is that it
combines most pile analyses in a single program. It calculates
compression (with settlement), uplift, and lateral capacity all
together. Users only need to input the data once instead several
times in different programs. All-Pile
makes pile analysis both cost-saving and time-efficient.
All-Pile is suitable for
all engineers, even those without too much pile analysis
experience. It helps structural engineers choose soil parameters,
and geotechnical engineers choose pile properties. All-Pile
is a must-have tool for structural, geotechnical, and
- Vertical analysis is
based on the approaches and methods recommended in FHWA,
AASHTO, and NAVY DM-7 (NAVFAC) manuals. The compression
capacity is the combination of skin friction and tip
resistance. The uplift capacity is the sum of skin friction
and pile weight.
- Lateral analysis
directly uses the COM624P program developed by FHWA. It uses
the finite-difference method to model soil-structure
interaction. All-pile is a pre-process and Windows interface
of COM624P. It creates a COM624P input file and calls COM624P
internally. COM624P input and output files can be directly
viewed and printed. For comparison, you can directly run
COM624P yourself using the input files created by All-Pile
(COM624P is included in the package). All-Pile is also
comparable with Lpile (© Ensoft Inc.). In our tests, All-Pile
generated the same results as Lpile.
- Smart Data Find
Users only need to select N-value (SPT) from a sliding bar.
The program then automatically searches into its database to
find the other soil parameters that are necessary for the
analysis, such as friction, cohesion, density, subgrade
reaction coefficient, and P-y parameters. For users with
limited field data, they can just input SPT or any one of
parameters and let the program to find the remaining data.
The graphical interface changes simultaneously with the
inputs to illustrate the pile profile. Pile head and load are
graphically presented to help users to input data quickly and
The program evaluates the uplift and compression capacity
of the pile.
The program calculates pile settlement at design load based on
the values of point load, skin friction, and shaft compression.
- Point of Fixity
All-Pile determines the Point of Fixity and Stiffness of
- Lateral Capacity
All-Pile performs lateral analysis under eight head-load
boundary conditions. Deflection, moment, and shear along the
entire length of the pile are presented graphically in the
- Group Piles
Both vertical and lateral analyses handle group piles.
- Batter Pile and
The program can handle battered pile and sloped ground.
- Seismic and
Circular and static load conditions can be selected in the
The program computes the downdrag force formed by
settlement of soft layers.
- Zero Friction
All-Pile handles no-friction sections of the pile, such as
tieback free bond length.
The program calculates the section properties for reinforced
or hollow piles. It has a built-in database for all available
W and H steel piles.
All-Pile presents the results using high quality graphics,
which can be inserted directly into the report. Users can
customize format of a report.
- Export to EXCEL
All-Pile results can be exported to MS-EXCEL graphics and
reports by a few mouse clicks. So users can modify the reports
and graphics easiely.
- English and
The program accommodates both English and metric units.
- More Features Are
CivilTech will continue to add new features and improve
the program in response to users' comments and recommendations.
