Include moment-curvature effect in Alp
Merrick Taylor commented
This would bring the software more in line with L-pile capability. Currently we are behind most of our competitors in this aspect. This feature is necessary for assessing pile performance in liquefied soils, where yielding of pile is allowed to occur provided extreme fibre strains are within specified tolerances.
Scott Reid commented
This would build nicely from the ADSEC module currently under beta testing in ALP.
Assumptions about intact or partially cracked stiffness makes a significant difference to pile moment/deflection assessments.
