The Design Guide for AASHTO Pile Caps references two supplemental spreadsheets that are available for downloading. Each are briefly described.

CRSI-PILECAP-AASHTO (Limited Version): This spreadsheet was used to generate the design tables in Chapter 9.  It can also be used to design other pile caps with allowable pile loads that vary from the pile capacities presented in the design tables or when pile shapes or types vary.  This spreadsheet can also be used to customize a specific design when a preferred reinforcement arrangement is desired. 

CRSI-PILECAP-AASHTO (Full Version): This spreadsheet allows the designer significant freedom to vary from many of the requirements, recommendations, and assumptions presented in the Design Guide.  For example, the designer may need to minimize pile cap edge distances when pile caps are adjacent to a property line or use less than the recommended pile spacing in some cases.  As such, extra caution should be used by the designer to verify that all final designs are in accordance with 2014 AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (AASHTO).
