MODEL Test and Study of Vertical Loading Single Pile in Transversely Isotropy Clay
According to the basic idea of similarity theory, the pile model in saturated transverse isotropic clay is determined. It imitates the moment of different positions along the pile and acceleration of each test point on the soil surface, under the same largest exciting force with different frequencies on the top of the pile. The results of experiment show that the variation trends of the moment are the same for different frequencies of excitation, looking like an inverse S. Acceleration value of each test point on the soil surface decreases with decline of the exciting frequency.
