Soil representation as COMBIN14 (linear Spring) around the length embedded of the Pile.

Hey Everyone,


I have a project work where I have to represent a group of pile embedded in a soil. I am only requested to represent the soil by (Winkle's Method). The questions is, how would I distribute the discrete stiffness along the length of the pile. In Ansys 19.2, I can create springs from Connections, however it would take a lot of time (which is not functional) to create spring at each node. Which means, I have to type in the APDL a command that assigns the springs to required nodes.

Regards,
