Interactive generation and calculation of pile-plate foundations

The analysis of pile-plate foundations with consideration of different linear and non linear effects is a demanding task. With FIDES-PILEpro it is possible to solve such kind of problems in an economic way. Normally the pile heads will be coupled together over a rigid plate, FIDES-PILEpro also makes it possible to consider elastic plates (Finite Element Analysis), that may be hardened by arising walls. Moreover also integrated is the automatic calculation of the two-way transverse bedding effects of the piles as well as the dimensioning of the piles.
