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

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

"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"

"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"
