Alp

The easy way to analyse soil structure interaction of a laterally-loaded pile

When it comes to analysing laterally-loaded piles, Alp makes things simple. The software models soil shear failure and non-linear soil behaviour, calculating deflection down the pile together with moments and shear forces within the pile.

Choose options to suit any piling project

Alp represents the pile as a series of elastic beam elements and the soil as a series of independent springs. Alp is a flexible piece of software designed for demanding projects. Users can tailor the options to suit, and see and share results in a clear graphical output.

The software is simple to set up. Alp represents the pile as a series of elastic beam elements and the soil as a series of independent springs. Alp handles soil properties varying with depth, and users can specify water pressures as hydrostatic or piezometric. They can also Apply lateral loads or bending moments at any location down the pile. The same goes for full, lateral or bending moment restraint. Displacements can be imposed in the body of soil surrounding the pile, the top of which can be above ground level.

Designed with busy engineers in mind, Alp is already used to analyse the soil structure interaction of laterally-loaded piles on projects around the world.

adc

ADC enables users to make the final engineering choice by presenting a list of reinforcement arrangements that meet the detailing and load requirements. ADC makes analysing and designing columns, beams, solid slabs and ribbed slabs straightforward, working to EC2, BS8110 and Hong Kong design codes. It also checks the reinforcement detailing to ensure that the design is code-compliant and buildable.

AdSec

AdSec is also invaluable for refurbishment projects, enabling engineers to calculate the capacity of existing beams and columns, then telling them how much improvement they can achieve from bonded carbon fibre plates and other improvements. AdSec is ideal for tasks such as analysing a bridge beam for cracking under load, designing a composite mega column, checking a pre-stressed floor or finding the capacity of a pile.

CADrebar

Easy to learn and use, the program provides fast concrete detailing and scheduling, supporting the BS8666:2005 British Standard. This software puts users in control of concrete detailing with single or multiple bar placements on all commands. The program produces industry standard schedules and enables users to create and schedule custom bar types.

Compos

The software does everything an engineer needs to analyse and design composite steel beams at construction and final stages — including automatically selecting beams and studs. From handling variable slab widths and thicknesses to calculating the response factor from footfall-induced vibration, Compos is a powerful tool.
