Depends on the software. N could be the number of sections that you
want to break the pile down into for a Finite Difference
Course, it could also be the blow counts on the soil.
Geesh, why don't you guys just hire a geotechnical engineer to do
the soil-interaction analysis for you as part of his report for the
project. You are trying to use appropriate geotechnical

I don’t have the
answer to your question, but I’m working on laterally loaded piles as well and
trying to find the point of fixity. I have some equations which require
an input value for N, but it not clear to me which N value I might need to use
when the pile will be driven thru several layers. Any

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.
