Simulation for the Complete Uninterrupted Penetrating Process of Jacked Pile


Article Preview

The FEM mehods for simulating the penetration of jacked pile were summarized. Using the displacement penetration method, the complete uninterrupted penetrating process of jacked pile was simulated with the finite element method based on ANSYS. The soil’s displacement and stress field were obtained, and compared with the field test. The elastoplastic constitution law, large deformation, soil’s gravity field and pile-soil friction contact were taken into account. The difficulties and skills in the simulation were indicated, so it might be helpful to the other researchers.
