D-Pile Group – Dynamic
The Dynamic module is a dedicated calculation model for dynamic analysis of a collision of a ship against a pile cap. It can be used for both single-pile and multi-pile dolphins. It accounts for the inertia effects due to the mass of the cap and the piles. The loading is restricted to a mass (ship) impacting the cap at a point, in a direction and at a speed which can be selected by the user. It also incorporates a special soil reaction model that accounts for undrained lateral loading in sand.
- Layered soil (max. 99 layers).
- No pile-soil-pile interaction.
- Raking piles.
D-Pile Group comes as a standard module, which can be extended further with other modules to fit more advanced applications
