Paper Title:
Experimental Study of Compressive Bearing Capacity of Pile-Bucket Foundation
  Abstract

By combining indoor model experiment and numerical simulation, the analysis of pile-bucket foundation bearing capacity under pressure load was conducted, and the bearing capacity can be enhanced by enlarging the three main dimensions of pile-bucket foundation: diameter of bucket, height of bucket and length of pile. By enlarging the diameter of bucket by 1.5 times while maintaining the two other dimensions, the bearing capacity can be enhanced by 140%;the bearing capacity can be enhanced by 15% when the height of bucket is enlarged by 2 times; the bearing capacity can be enhanced by 14% when the pile length is enlarged by 30% ,that means the variation of bucket diameter affects the pile-bucket foundation bearing capacity most, apart from that the variation of bucket diameter also holds the most obvious effect on the ground foundation soil body in crosswise scope, the bucket diameter of 3# pile-bucket was 1.5 times that of 1# pile-bucket, after the surrounding soil broke, the influence scope on crosswise soil surface was enhanced by the size 3.8 times breadth of bucket diameter; and the pile-length variation keeps the largest effect on surrounding soil body in-depth, the depth of effect on grounding soil of 1#pile-bucket is enlarged by 925mm comparing by 2#pile-bucket (approximately 9 times of bucket diameter) ; By conducting indoor-model pressure bearing capacity experiment on pile –bucket foundation,bucket foundation and circular-shape shallow foundation with same diameter, the limiting bearing capacity of pile-bucket foundation is 3.2 times that of circular-shape shallow foundation and 1.26 times that of bucket foundation, a manifestation of the bearing capacity advantage of pile-bucket foundation.
