Description Repute is a computer program for determining the response of pile groups to 3D loading, using linear or non-linear soil models. Features: a notebook style user interface for entry of pile, layer, and loading data; a calculation engine based on the boundary-element method; reporting capabilities via its in-built web browser, rich text viewer, and graph control. It's calculation engine is the program PGroupN, which provides a complete 3D non-linear boundary element solution of the soil continuum. This overcomes limitations of traditional interaction-factor methods and gives more realistic predictions of deformations and the load distribution between piles. It deals efficiently with soil non-linearity, avoiding exaggerated stresses and consequential high loads and bending moments at pile-group corners (a common limitation of linear-elastic models). It is supplied with a User Manual, including three step-by-step tutorials. A separate chapter explains the background theory and assumptions behind the program. Technical support is provided free for 30 days and thereafter via an annual support agreement. Service Packs are placed on the WWW at regular intervals.
