VLoad

VLoad is a software to design concrete capping beams transferring significant vertical and/or horizontal loads into the steel sheet piles. The aim is to help consulting engineers with the design of cost-effective concrete capping beams, including the steel reinforcement. It is based on the German ‘Allgemeine Bauartgenehmigung’, a national technical approval, granted by the ‘Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik’ (DIBt), which complies with the European standard EN 1992 for the design of concrete structures. It is only valid for sheet piles manufactured by ArcelorMittal.

From a practical point of view, the design based on the German National Technical Approval could be applied in any country that uses similar design codes, but it is the responsibility of the design engineer to verify any technical and legal implications.

The software is free of charge. Click on this link VLoad_v2.2.0 to download the installation file (version 2.2 - 12/2018).
