Geocentrix Repute - Intelligent pile design and analysis

Features and benefits

Repute boasts a powerful calculation engine and a rich user interface making it the UK's leading onshore pile design program.

The program includes a wide range of engineering capabilities for designing single piles to modern design standards and analysing pile groups in 3-dimensions using linear and non-linear soil models.

Repute is supplied with comprehensive documentation (including a user-manual, reference manual and quick-start guide); includes extensive built-in help; and is backed up with expert technical support.

Re/x User interface

Ribbon interface simplifies program navigation by organizing commands into logical groups separated by tabs.


Drawing Board provides scaled drawing of the scenario in separate cross-section, elevation, & plan views.


Project Manager displays all the components of the project in a logically grouped tree for easy navigation.


Stockyard contains over 100 ready-to-use engineering items with drag-drop capabilities for immediate inclusion in the project.


Property Inspector provides quick-access to the properties of all items, synchronized with the Drawing Board.


Workbook tabulates the results of all calculations and provides advanced sorting, grouping, and filtering options.


Graph Paper shows results in graphical format with options to alter every aspect of the graph's content and visual layout.


Message Board collects and automatically filters all program-generated messages for easy viewing.

Reporter summarizes key details of the project in highly customizable and easily printable reports.

Browser provides convenient access to the Internet with links to commonly used program information.
