Abstract:

The primary purpose of this report is to document four pile analysis-related finite difference computer programs COM62, PX4C3, MAKE, and BENT1 and a structural analysis program BMCOL51. These programs have been converted to run on the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES G-635 computer system. Basic theory to explain the methods used in the computer programs is also included in the report. COM62 solves laterally loaded pile problems using an iterative scheme that considers nonlinear soil resistance versus pile movement curves. PX4C3 is a computer program written for the analysis of an axially loaded pile accounting for nonlinear soil properties. MAKE is a program that generates lateral soil resistance-pile movement curves from laboratory soil testing data based on predefined criteria. BENT1 analyzes group pile problems, again accounting for nonlinear soil behavior under both axial and lateral loads. BMCOL51 is a computer program based on the discrete element theory.
