Analysis Options

Analysis results can be obtained in three different ways in RSPile:

  • Graph Pile
  • Graph Resistance
  • Graph Pile Length
  • Graph Pile Pushover
  • Graph Pile Stiffness
  • Graph Pile Interface Curve

Results can be viewed directly on the model, graphed and exported. See the above links for further information.

Export Data to Excel

Analysis results can be exported to Excel with the Export Data to Excel option. This option is available from the Export submenu of the File menu, while in a graph view.
