Experimental Research on Failure Mode of Micro-Pile in Landslide Reinforcement
In recent years, micro-pile has been widely applied to landslide treatment engineering due to its advantages in application and construction, and the engineering effect is very evident. Large-scale physical model test was made for studying failure mode of micro-pile group in landslide, which indicated that numerical magnitudes between the displacement and the stress of the piles are better consistent along the load transfer direction. Concentrated destruction points locate on about three times the pile diameter up and down the slip surface. Failure mode of micro-pile in landslide treatment engineering is: pile of the loaded segment usually breaks for bending moment and shear force, and back of sliding side mainly exposes to the tension role, compared to role of tension of anchored segment in front of the micro-piles and compression behind of the piles.
