Pile CPT

This program verifies the vertical bearing capacity and settlement of piles, based on the results provided by (static) cone penetration tests (CPT) and standard penetration tests (SPT).



  • Analysis of the pile bearing capacity according to CPTs using the following standards and methods:
    • EN 1997-2
    • NEN 6743
    • LCPC (Bustamante)
    • Schmertmann
  • Analysis of the pile bearing capacity according to SPTs using the following methods:
    • Décourt-Quaresma
    • Aoki-Velloso
  • Circular or rectangular pile cross-section (with the option of base enlargement)
  • Takes account of pile and installation technology
  • Built-in database of soils
  • General layered subsoil
  • Import CPT and SPT tests in TXT format, gINT format, AGS format or NEN standard
  • Verification based on the theory of limit states or factor of safety
  • Calculation of the limit load curve and pile settlement for a given loading
  • Analysis of the pile group according to the CPTs
  • Accounts for negative skin friction
