Axial and lateral load piles are deep foundation elements that are used to transfer loads from the superstructure to the underlying soil or rock. The calculations for axial and lateral load piles involve determining the capacity of the pile to resist the loads and moments acting on the pile.

Axial Load Piles: The calculation for axial load piles involves the following steps:

  1. Determine the soil properties, such as the soil type, unit weight, angle of internal friction, and cohesion.
  2. Determine the design load for the pile, which includes the dead load, live load, and any other loads or surcharges that may act on the pile.
  3. Determine the ultimate capacity of the pile using methods such as static pile load tests, dynamic pile load tests, or analytical methods based on the soil properties and pile geometry.
  4. Calculate the allowable capacity of the pile by applying a factor of safety to the ultimate capacity, typically ranging from 2.5 to 4.0.
  5. Determine the required diameter and length of the pile based on the allowable capacity and the design load.

Lateral Load Piles: The calculation for lateral load piles involves the following steps:

  1. Determine the soil properties, such as the soil type, unit weight, angle of internal friction, and cohesion.
  2. Determine the design lateral load for the pile, which includes the wind load, earthquake load, or any other lateral loads that may act on the pile.
  3. Determine the moment of the pile using the design lateral load and the distance between the pile and the point of rotation.
  4. Determine the ultimate capacity of the pile to resist lateral loads using methods such as lateral pile load tests, dynamic pile load tests, or analytical methods based on the soil properties and pile geometry.
  5. Calculate the allowable capacity of the pile by applying a factor of safety to the ultimate capacity, typically ranging from 2.5 to 4.0.
  6. Determine the required diameter and length of the pile based on the allowable capacity and the design lateral load.

Overall, the calculations for axial and lateral load piles require a thorough understanding of the soil properties, pile geometry, and loading conditions, and should be performed by qualified and experienced engineers using appropriate methods and techniques.

there is no download options
I wish it was available in English Units for use in the US. Thank you!

Version 1.3.1feature for more than one pile.S for long feature wall.2

Turan thanks for the update! Works fine in 2010 but the MMINVERSE() function in Excel 2003 must be less than 56 x 56 = 3136 cells so it will only run in Excel 2010 (we have seen this issue before). I also wondered if you would use the forum link to tell us what has changed in version 1.3 - but as always Turan this is another piece of Excel gold!

There is a free Microsoft compatibility pack download. I use this with Excel 2003 and I can open any Excel file format including Excel 2007 and Excel 2010. [Here is the link](http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466). I suggest that all our users using Excel 2000 or Excel 2003 install it because increasingly we receive xlsx file formats from users uploading to the repository.
