How can we improve Oasys geotechnical software?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Add ability to select / specify casing diameter in PILE

    When constructing a pile with temporary casing, the pile diameter through the cohesionless (cased) soils is much greater, resulting in an increased shaft area and thus capacity.

    Currently Pile can only specify one (the minimum) pile diameter.

    • Enable SLS check as part of Eurocode (ULS) calculations

      It would be very useful to enable a check that the characteristic pile shaft resistance is greater than the characteristic pile action.

      i.e. a factor of >1 on the shaft capacity alone

      • Ability to input both compression and tension loads in the same file

        It is currently not possible to apply both tensile and compressive loads in the same file to compare against the calculated resistances. The programme subtracts the tensile loads which are applied as negative loads from the compressive loads which are positive instead of recognising them as separate loads.

        • Pile to be able to handle c-phi soils

          Pile currently treats soils in two broad catergories: drained and undrained, the drained soils have only an angle of friction and the undrained only the undrained cohesion. It would be nice if c-phi soils (e.g sandy clays, clayey sands) can also be considered.

          • Extend Pile to model embedded retaining walls as a rectangular panel

            Where embedded pile retaining walls carry axial loads, it is common practice to analyse the section as a rectangular panel rather than individual circular piles (with a reduced end bearing co-efficient akin to a deep strip footing).

            To date, we have achieved this by modelling an under-ream pile with different shaft and base diameters. However, it would be simpler and clearer if Pile could analyse a rectangular section. This would also be beneficial for calculation of axial resistance for diaphragm wall panels.

            Refer to method of Hov et al from 2010 DFI Conference (attached).
