Experimental Study on Optimization Design of Variable Diameter Pile-Raft Foundation
Test model who’s scale is 1:10 was established. According to the actual engineering, through the model test, the laws about the settlement of the pile-raft foundation, vertical and horizontal settlement of soil, pile force, soil force and pile-soil stress ratio were studied under natural foundation, uniform and variable diameter pile-raft foundation. It can provide theoretical basis for Future research the pile raft foundation.
