Re: Caisson Design Program

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I know of no programs that analyze the caisson and soil interaction other
than modeling it with springs. You might want to discuss this with your
soils engineer especially the spring constant. Depending on how much
refinement you need, you might just assume some conservative depth at which
fixity occurs and calculate the moment that way.......then use a program
like PCA Column to determine the reinforcement.
