Pile Dynamics updates pile driving simulation software

Pile Dynamics has updated its pile driving hammer database for its pile driving simulation software in a bid to provide greater accuracy.

According to the company, the Wave Equation Analysis of Piles (GRLWEAP) software is the most widely used program for the simulation of the pile driving process and for establishing the driving criterion.

A key feature of GRLWEAP is its database of almost 1,000 pre-programmed pile driving hammers and Pile Dynamics has now undertaken a major update of the database in cooperation with the equipment manufacturers. The update has ensured that information on efficiency and other key characteristics is the latest available.

The program uses the data as part of the pile driving simulation. For each assumed pile capacity, GRLWEAP calculates the corresponding driving resistance (blow count) and stresses during driving. It can also be used check the adequacy of pile driving equipment and for designing dynamic load tests on drilled foundations. 

The latest database is part of GRLWEAP 2010-6, which includes other improvements to the software and help functions as well. The upgrade to version 2010-6 is complimentary for those with licenses of GRLWEAP-2010 (either standard or Offshore Wave versions).
