With a few preliminaries out of the way, we can proceed to discuss the new TAMWAVE routine, which can be found here.
What is TAMWAVE?
TAMWAVE stands for Texas A&M Wave Equation. The TTI wave equation was developed at Texas A&M in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, and was a successor to Smith’s original wave equation program. In reality this is more than a wave equation program; it is a driven pile analyser which, in addition to the wave equation program, analyses the static performance of a driven pile for both axial and lateral loads. It is not intended to be used on actual projects, but as an educational tool for students. Most of the software in current use is expensive, and predecessors such as SPILE, WEAP87 or COM624 are hard to use (they’re DOS programs) or methodological obsolescence issues. (With WEAP87, there are not as…
