Least Square Inversed Analysis of Soil Parameter for Foundation with Two-Order Gradient Theoretic Method
Combined with two-order gradient theory, the least square inversed analysis of the soil parameter for the foundation is studied and put forward in detail. After the mechanical theory for the plate on the foundation is introduced, the controlling differential equations of the plate on the foundation which is subjected to vertical loads are deduced. Through utilizing Fourier transformative theory, the corresponding solutions to the plate on the foundation are gained. Linear algebra controlling equations for the plate are achieved which leads to solve the original differential equations more easily. The least square error function for the soil parameter on the plate is established and applied with the two-order gradient method. The inversed steps on the least square error function for the soil parameter are listed. The calculation results verify the conclusions that the soil parameter of the foundation can be efficiently inversed by applying the least square theory. When different initial soil parameter is set, the iterative computations can be convergent to the true value of the soil parameter. And this least square method can also be applied for the problem of inversed analysis of parameters for other foundation models.
