Description CAPWAP is a signal matching program which uses the measured force and velocity from a Pile Driving Analyzer as a forcing function, models the pile as a series of segments, and calculates the soil response. It solves for soil resistance parameters of wave equation analyses based on the approach by E. A. L. Smith. Results from this analysis include the total capacity and its distribution along the shaft and at the toe, damping factors and quakes. The extrema for force, velocity, displacement, and energy are output as a function of length along the shaft. A simulated static load test is calculated and presented. The program is automated to produce generally reasonable results in a completely automated mode. The user is however encouraged to review results and test the sensitivity to various parameters to further improve the match.
