Model Test Research of Pile Body Modulus on the Long-Short-Pile Composite Foundation
In order to study the impact of pile modulus variation on the long-short-pile composite foundation,the relation between bearing capacity and settlement, distribution of the axial force and skin friction along pile, pile-soil stress ratio, load sharing ratio and the bearing mechanics of long-short-pile composite foundation with long and short piles were studied based on laboratory tests in three different conditions: Long pile(Aluminum) with short pile (pentatricopeptide repeats, PPR), Long pile(polyvinyl chloride, PVC) with short pile (PPR), and Long pile(Aluminum) with short pile (PVC). Conclusions were as follows: The settlement of long-short-pile composite foundation decreased with the increasing of long piles modulus, meanwhile, the value of long piles axial force increased, and the value of short piles axial force decreased, and the pile-soil load sharing ratio(LSR) increased. On the other hand, there are few influence on settlement, long piles axial force, and pile-soil load sharing ratio when the modulus of short piles modulus changed, except that the value of short piles axial force and short piles modulus increased or decreased on the same direction.
