Cantsink’s helical pile capacity calculator for pile foundation design is a computer software developed by Cantsink. The Cantsink Capacity Calculator (C3) allows engineers to design and model helical piles in almost all soil conditions.
The software allows multiple pile diameters and helix configurations to be modeled in the same soil conditions so the optimum helical pile can be chosen for the required design working loads.
For helical capacity, the software input requires soil type (clay, silt, sand), soil properties in the form of SPT or CPT, recommended safety factor, and working design loads in both tension and compression.
The professional helical pile capacity calculator output includes compression and tension capacities, minimum required installation torque, minimum required embedment depth of the pile/anchor and the pile deflection.
For retaining walls, the input includes retaining wall dimensions, as well as material, pile configuration, and soil properties. The professional output computes wall stability, including wall forces, moment and pile loads.
