The ultimate axial capacity output is presented in the ‘AxCap’ tab of OPILE. The first table presents the axial capacity details for every pile depth. Both the Plugged and Unplugged capacity are always presented, independent of the selected axial capacity method. he second table presents the calculation details at final penetration. The calculation details at earlier penetrations are not presented.
