Geocentrix Repute - Intelligent pile design and analysis

Welcome to Repute 2.5

Geocentrix Repute boasts a powerful calculation engine and a rich user interface making it the UK’s leading onshore pile design program.
Repute provides a rich set of tools for designing/analyzing onshore piles and pile groups, including:

  • various types of pile, including augered, bored, H-, micro, pipe, spun, and square piles
  • various design standards, including BS 8004 (2015 and 1986), Eurocode 7 (BS, IS, SS, and EN versions), NTC08, and custom
  • various calculations, including capacity and settlement of single piles, Fleming’s back analysis, and boundary element method for single piles and pile groups
  • algorithms for soil bearing and shaft friction (alpha, beta, bearing capacity, , earth pressure coefficient), no contact, plugging, rock bearing and friction, bearing pressure and skin friction limits, and wall friction
  • pile groups under generalized 3-dimensional loading, using linear or non-linear soil models
