RE: L-Pile Analysis

If soil, - constant for lateral resistant k.  (Spring constant i.e. pounds resistance for inches deflection at that point on pile)
Don't recommend that you use L pile or any lateral load analysis software without understanding what the output means and how to establish the proper boundary conditions.  You can get some real bad output.

Subject: L-Pile Analysis

I'm running the L-Pile analysis program for some laterally loaded piles.  It has output values for lbs. per inch along the length of the pile.  I don't have a manual for this program.  Does anyone know for sure what this output represents.  I need the lateral soil bearing values and I think this output has something to do with this but I really would like to know for sure.


Thanks in advance.
