Research on Load Transfer Model of Super-Long Single Pile
Currently, super-long piles are designed based on the theory of normal long piles. There is no recognized reasonable mechanical model for qualitative analysis. In this paper, based on load transfer function method, an improved load transfer model is proposed, which gives consideration to both the degradation of skin friction and the asynchronous work between lateral friction resistance and pile-tip resistance caused by pile-soil slip. By applying it in various working conditions, the corresponding pile-soil displacement and axial force of super-long piles are derived. Finally, the proposed model is validated by comparing its analytical solutions to the results of FEM and practical survey of super-long piles, and it provides a new efficient approach for the study of the mechanical behavior of super-long single pile.
