DC-Software Foundation - News

December 17, 2018

Extensive new developments in the area of foundation engineering are available in DC-Software: new pile type ductile driven pile: steel pipe + cement infilling in DC-Pile, application of stabilisation columns for slope stability analysis in DC-Slope and many other improvments in DC-Fondation programs.


  • Analysis of ductile driven piles acc. to certification or OENORM B 2567
  • Load bearing capacity from steel section + filling with cement mortar
  • When selecting values of skin friction and end bearing acc. to Recommendations on Piles or DIN 1054, it is now possible to interpolate for available values of qc (for non-cohesive soils) or cu (for cohesive soils) and within the range of values acc. to Recommendations on Piles

DC-Slope - application of stabilisation columns for slope stability analysis

  • Approach for StS acc. to Goemmel Goemmel and Neidhart
  • Definition of non-reinforced stabilisation columns
  • Consideration of different forms of failure like bending, flowing around and turning
  • Application of the normal force in the column
  • Determination of the moment capacity and the shear force
  • Application of the tangential tot al resistance as stabilising moment at the slip circle or as a shear force in the slip area acc. to Janbu
  • Optimisation function for the column distance to fulfill the verification Ed <= Rd
