Repute logoRepute 2.5 for onshore pile design

Repute 2.5 is the UK's leading pile group design program, which no serious pile designer should be without. Repute allows engineers to design:

  • single piles subject to vertical loading, according to published design standards
  • pile groups under generalized 3-dimensional loading, using linear or non-linear soil models

Repute 2.5.13 is available for download from the program's updates page.


ReWaRD logoReWaRD 2.8 for embedded retaining wall design

ReWaRD is one of the leading programs for the design of embedded retaining walls, incorporating several UK and international standards including BS 8002 and EN 1997-1.

"Input of data and computer time for analysis are both very quick => Excellent"

ReWaRD 2.8.4 is available for download from the program's update page


ReActiv logoReActiv 2 for reinforced slope design

ReActiv is an interactive program for designing reinforced slopes, using reinforced soil or soil nails, following the guidance of the UK Highways Agency's advice note HA68.

ReActiv 2 Beta 2 is available for download from the program's field test page.

ReActiv 1.7.7 is available for download from the program's update page.

Testimonials for Repute

"...using REPUTE (hyperbolic model) was the most appropriate approach for the given structures and ground conditions, due to its versatility and ease of use"

Batilas et al. (2021), Design methodology for bridge abutment pile group foundations – a case study, Piling 2020

"Perhaps the most sophisticated analysis and design software for pile groups is REPUTE"

Randolph and Reul (2019), Practical approaches for design of pile groups and piled rafts. 4th Bolivian International Conference on Deep FoundationsPractical approaches for design of pile groups and piled rafts

"For pile groups subject to large horizontal/moment loads, non-linear stress-strain models (such as the hyperbolic model in software such as REPUTE) are likely to be the most appropriate"

Tony O’Brien (2019), From Minor to Major – The Evolution of Deep Foundations for Transportation Projects, 4th Bolivian International Conference on Deep Foundations

"The most effective means of carrying out a Category 3 analysis is to employ a pile group analysis program that considers non-linear pile-soil response and pile-soil-pile interaction, and is capable of handling all six components of loading simultaneously, e.g. ... REPUTE"

Harry Poulos (2017), Tall Building Foundation Design, Taylor & Francis, p128
