LatPile

  • LatPile calculates the maximum allowable lateral load on a steel pipe pile in marine environment.  The pile is treated as a cantilever pile.  The point of fixity is assumed to be 5D below mud line, where D is the outer diameter of the pile.  Users need to specify water depth, elevation of lateral load above water level, factor of safety, yield strength, pile diameter and wall thickness. In addition to the maximum allowable working load, the app also outputs stiffness, the corresponding maximum bending moment and deflection.
