Elasto-Plasticity Solution on Bearing Characteristic of Cast-in-Place Concrete Pipe Pile with Large Diameter in Layered Soil under Lateral Load
Aimed at problems lying in the exiting methods for calculation of laterally loaded piles installed in layered soils, the elasto-plasticity solution of cast-in-place concrete pipe pile with large diameter (PCC pile) in layered soil under lateral load based two-parameter foundation model and unity limiting force profile, deduced the finite difference solution based unity limiting force profile(LFP), established the calculation program of the displacement and internal force of pile. It was shown that the calculated pile moment and pile displacement coincided very well by computation and comparison of model test and FEM, verified the method’s correction. Meanwhile, the method was more precise and efficient than the existing conversion methods of subgrade modulus. Therefore, it could be useful for the design and analysis of PCC pile under lateral load.
