Description ALP analyses the soil-structure interaction of a laterally loaded pile. The program represents the pile as a series of elastic beam elements and the soil as a series of independent springs. Maximum earth pressure coefficients may be specified to model soil shear failure. Alternatively non-linear soil behaviour can be modelled as p-y curves which are generated or specified. The program calculates deflection down the pile together with bending moments and shear forces within the pile. Key features include: soil properties can vary with depth; water pressures may be either hydrostatic or piezometric; lateral loads or bending moments can be applied at any location down the pile; partial or full, lateral or bending moment restraint can be placed at any depth down the pile; the top of the pile can be above ground level; uniformly distributed surcharges can be placed at any depth; displacements can be imposed in the body of soil surrounding the pile. Also available as part of the Oasys Geo suite.
