Numerical Simulation Analysis for Enclosure Piles Cracking of a Deep Pit Foundation
Based on the appearance of crack of enclosure piles on a foundation pit, Midas GTS is adopted to establish the finite element model. Through the numerical simulation, the influence of the direction of wind load, wind scale and prestress of anchor are analyzed, the worst wind load direction, unfavorable construction condition, maximum moment of enclosure piles are ensured, crack width in different disadvantageous factors are calculated, which provides a guide for continuous construction.
