RE: Lateral Load on Pile Program

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Shouldn't the geotechnical engineer should have these programs.  Usually, I provide the any lateral loads on the tops of piles, and then the geotechnical engineer will utilize these programs to determine shear and moment diagrams.

Subject: Lateral Load on Pile Program

Has anybody had experience using the COM624P software developed by FHWA?  I have a geotech engineer who needs moments and shears on a laterally loaded pile and I was wondering if this program has worked well for others.  It is a lot cheaper than LPILE but as the old adage goes, "you get what you pay for".  Anybody like the program?  Or are there better programs available?
