  • The nonlinear displacement and rotational spring stiffnesses at the pile head or pile group

  • Deflection, moment, shear and soil reaction along the isolated pile and individual piles in a group

  • The degradation of pile bending stiffness ( EI) up to failure (i.e. moment-curvature)

  • The consideration of group action among piles in the group with no need to p-multipliers or reduction factor

  • Consideration of soil liquefaction in the free- and near-field including limited and full soil liquefaction

  • Consideration of lateral soil spread

The CGI-DFSAP demo is limited to 1-ft diameter pile and only 2 layers of soils.
The pile group will be also limited to 3 x 3 pile group.
