Getting Pile spring stiffness verses depth from plaxis 3D

Hi all

We are trying to model foundation piles as a frame element with discrete points spring ( P-y , T-Z & Q-z ) spaced at 1.00 m segmentation of the depth, so the question now  what is the most exact method can we extract piles points springs verses depth from plaxis 3d analysis.

Thanks

  • Dear Amir,

    Based on the information shared, you can simply extract the results for each point at various depths of the structural element and create the load-displacement curve (e.g. P-y curves) for the case of a foundation pile. This will be based on the applied load in each of the cases you have.

    This may require some post-processing if you are interested in using these in a structural software.
