How do you enter the values for skin friction and pile tip resistance during member elastics when designing tapered piles in the program?


For the pile tip resistance, the bedding must be multiplied by the cross-sectional area (see Figure 1).

For skin friction, the bedding must be multiplied by the circumference of the cross section (see Figure 2).
