PaleCPT 5.0

Program PaleCPT allows caclulating pile bearing capacity and settlement on the basis of the two European methods – German method EAP and French method LCPC.

  • The calculations are performed on the basis of the two leading European methods – German method EAP and French method LCPC. The program calculates bearing capacity of compression and tension piles.
  • The program calculates pile settlement during operation oraz during static load test. There is presented the diagram of pile settlement for particular load steps.
  • Program enables reading the data from any graph of CPT probing. Graphic module imports CPT probing to the program and displays on the computer screen.
  • The calculation results are presented interactively in graphic form. There is shown the diagrams of pile resistance and pile settlement in defined subsoil. Graphic view simplify user to choose appropriate length of pile in analysing ground parameters.

Scope of calculations

  • bearing capacity of compression and tension piles
  • minimum and maximum unit soil resistance determining possible range of pile bearing capacity
  • diagram of pile settlement during operation and static load test
  • pile settlement for characteristic load
  • analysis of geotechnical conditions below pile base

Import data

import data from any graph of CPT probing using the graphics module

import data from embedded Excel template used for easy data editing and calculating shear strength of soil

Presentation of results

interactive graphic form includes diagram of pile bearing capacity in defined subsoil for both methods

summary table of pile bearing capacity for both methods

diagram of pile settlement during operation and static load test

details of calculation results in summary table of pile bearing capacity intermediate parameters for both methods

Print results
