Load Bearing Capacity Analysis of Squeezed Branch and Plate Pile under Vertical and Lateral Loads
Considering the initial stress field and concrete damage, no-linearity caused by crack of concrete, non-linear of reinforcement, elastic-plastic of soil around pile, couple interaction between concrete and steel, non-linearity contact of interface between pile and soil, the lateral load bearing capacity of squeezed branch and plate pile under vertical and lateral load is studied with infinite element and finite element couple method. The results indicate that the vertical load decreases the lateral displacement of pile top and increase the pile lateral load bearing capacity at the same time.
