Dynamic Response of Pile Groups under Vertical Forces in Saturated Soil
Based on Biot’s wave propagation equation and boundary conditions, this paper builds up pile group and soil system used for calculation in 3 dimension models, though mass conservative and motion equation. The results of ground surface movement are obtained under the effect of vertical dynamic force though Newmark direct integration. Compared with the measured results, the numerical outcomes conform accurately. The calculating results show that vibration of ground surface can be affected by several parameters such as soils’ possion ratio, permeability coefficient, different types of pile groups and so on. Different factors have different effects on ground’s surface vibration in both far field and near field.
