Ilyas,

By designing do you mean the limit state design of piles?

If yes,then best way to do it is using a software called LPile (http://www.ensoftinc.com). LPile would do the analysis of a pile embedded in soil which adjacent soils acting as springs. Soil horizontal subgrade values can be obtained from geotechnical engineer and used in LPile. The software will provide you with pile deflections, moments and shears. Once you get that, you need to plug it in a column design software to design your concrete pile. If it is a steel pile, you can do a beam-column moment check using the output from LPile.

If you would still like to do it in Etabs, then all you need to do is to model the pile (structural element) with horizontal springs along the length of pile. I have never designed a pile through Etabs as I use LPile. Pile is a column in which you need to consider stability from surrounding soil.

Hope it helps. Let me know of your follow up questions.

Thanks.

THANKS UMAR BAHI,THE SAME APPROCH IS DONE BY ME IN ETABS  BY ASSIGINING POINT SPRING IN HORIZENTAL DIRECTION FOR LATERAL  LOAD ANAYLSIS.ANYWAY I WAS UNAWARE OF THE SOFTWARE YOU MENTIONED ABOVE.AS I WAS HAVING PLAXIS 2D WHICH DOES NOT ANAYLIZE /DESIGN PILE WHILE ,PLAXIS 3D DOES SO SPECIALLY (PILED RAFT),BUT PRICE OF PLAXIS 3D IS TOO HIGH (2.5 MILLION),AND I AM ALSO INTERESTED IN CRACK VERSION OF PLAXIS 3D BUT I COULD NOT FIND ANYWHERE INCLUDING (www.civilea.com).if umar bahi you find the crack version please share with us.and what is price oF Lpile LICENSED LATEST VERSION.THANKS

Ilyas,

You can check the license price for LPILE here http://www.ensoftinc.com. As far as the crack version goes, it is against the forum rules to share cracked software or share links that lead to cracked software. Sorry I can't help you with that :)

Thanks.

      In Pile Foundations, please share any reference for :

      1. Pile Vertical Spring Constant= Compression/Allowable Settlement
      2. Allowable settlement is usually 1% of Pile Dia.

      Dear All,
       
      Any one know about steel sheet pile design? is there any software do you have or any excel sheet regarding this? kindly share with me.
