Study on the Influence Factors of m Value Based on PLAXIS Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis
In this paper, a geotechnical finite element software PLAXIS is used for the nonlinear finite element analysis of elastic long pile under the horizontal force action. By using the calculated maximum bending moment and the maximum displacement at the ground, and combined with the related formula for “m” method given in《 Code for Pile Foundation of Harbour Engineering》, a more accurate m value can be obtained conveniently. Based on this method and by the single factor analysis, a more systematic study was made to the related factors,and obtained the influence law of various factors to m value.
