Graph Pile Pushover

The Graph Pile Pushover option allows users to view a graph of Shear Force vs Top Deflection or Axial Force vs Top head deflection.

To graph Pile Pushover:

  1. Right-click on a pile and select Graph Pile Pushover, or select Other Other graphs icon > Pile Pushover, use your mouse to select the pile and press Enter.

The pushover analysis is carried out based on the information entered in the Advanced tab of the Add Single Pile add single pile icon dialog, under the Pushover Analysis section.

On axially loaded pile analysis:

Add Pile dialog: Advanced tab for an Axially Loaded Pile Analysis
Add Pile dialog: Advanced tab for an Axially Loaded Pile Analysis

On laterally loaded pile analysis:

Add Pile dialog: Advanced tab for an Laterally Loaded Pile Analysis
Add Pile dialog: Advanced tab for an Laterally Loaded Pile Analysis

The Pushover Analysis section (shown above) provides different options depending on the chosen analysis type. For example, if users select an axially-loaded pile analysis, they can perform pushover analysis in axial deflection only. Similarly, for laterally loaded piles, they can perform pushover analysis in lateral directions (both X and Y).

The graphs are displayed: Shear Force X’ vs Top Deflection X, Shear Force Y’ vs Top Deflection Y, and Axial Force Z’ vs Axial Head Displacement depending on the load pile analysis type. Users can change the chart data by right-clicking on either of the graphs and selecting Edit Charts for laterally loaded piles. It is important to note that these analyses are uncoupled, meaning the pushover analysis is only conducted in one direction.

Note that pushover analysis cannot be performed on rotated piles.
