I think, SAFE can be used for designing pile cap. I don't know, if it can handle irregular loading as it is there in your case, as I am not familiar with SAFE.
Can you please comment on the following ?
1. Can you represent the loading on the cap by point load & UDL ?. If yes, you may post a sketch showing the load details and points / areas of application.
2. What is the type (end bearing / friction / under-reamed) and length of the pile ?
3. What is the load carrying capacity of one pile ?
4. Are 8 piles required to carry 54 MT load ? I hope there is only vertical loads on the cap.
