After a long period of quiet time, I am so excited to announce the release of PyPile 0.7.0. Some significant changes and new functions will be discussed below.
Finite element method is implemented to replace the original finite difference method. FEM brings much higher flexibility for current functions and higher future extensibility for PyPile.
With this new release, lateral single ground springs, rotational springs, distributed springs provided by soils can be assigned to any depth along the piles. Piles can be fixed for lateral movement and rotation at any depths.
Concentrated lateral loads and moments, distributed lateral forces can be assigned to any depths along the analyzed piles. Distributed forces generated by relative soil movement can be easily applied to piles.
Distributed force generated by relative soil movement can be exported and used as input in other software programs, such as slope stability analysis programs.
In addition, weak rock and c-phi soil models are also implemented in this release.
I am happy to announce that Frost1D 0.1.0 is released. Hopefully it can help engineers or researchers for projects in the cold or relatively cold regions.
Frost1D is a one dimensional frost penetration analysis program. It can analyze multi-layered materials with various boundaries. Built-in fine and coarse grained soils, general freezable material and simple material can meet various project requirements.
I am happy to announce PyPile 0.4.0 is released today.
With PyPile 0.4.0, users can analyze laterally loaded piles with: 1) axial pile head loads; 2) English units; 3) result graph export to svg, emf, pdf, and png formats; 4) more HP pile types; 5) some other minor improvements.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, recommendations, or bug reports. Thank you for your support!
I am happy to announce that PyPile 0.3.0 has been released today and available for download from the Download menu.
Multiple piles can be analyzed in one run with PyPile 0.3.0; analysis results for all piles are summarized in one excel file. HP piles are added in the cross section types and the HP pile library is editable for end users. As requested by some users, load generation tool is back on the load dialog. Analysis result can also be viewed in the Result Data tab of the main window next to the Result Graph tab now. Some other minor improvements and bug fixes are also included in this release.
I am very happy to announce SoilStats 0.3.0 is now available. The main improvements compared with 0.2.x are duplicated borehole numbers differentiation and multiple data map files incorporation. Some minor improvements and bug fixes are also included.
With SoilStats 0.3.0, users can analyze multiple gINT files with duplicated borehole names from different projects; users also can analyze multiple gINT files generated based on different template files. With these new functions, it turns out to be very easy to summarize existing borehole files from different resources.
In addition, borehole coordinates and elevations are presented in a new view.
We are pleased to announce SoilStats 0.2.0 is released. SoilStats is a tool to analyze gINT geotechnical borehole logs and provide statistical information of the soils. It will help engineers reduce geotechnical report preparation time significantly.
SoilStats 0.2.0 incorporates statistical analysis of water / moisture content, spt N value, pocket pen reading, soil layer thickness and depth, water level depth and Atterberg Limits. SoilStats is able to query soil information from multiple gINT files at the same time, and also can help engineers regroup soil layers for different summarization requirements.
In order to interpret the data correctly, SoilStats will require different data map files for gINT files generated with different templates. Currently there is one example gINT file with its associated data map file in the release bundle. To use SoilStats with your own gINT file, please send your typical gINT file to Yong Technology to create a data map file for you. Creating data map files is free of charge.
We are very happy to announce that PyPile 0.2.0 is released. In this release,
1. Multi-layered soil is considered.
2. A P multiplier is added to reduce P value in p-y curves in some use cases.
3. Lateral force and moment can be applied to pile head at the same time.
4. Pile rotation angle output along pile length is added.
