Numerical Analysis of the Influence of Vertical Load on the Horizontal Bearing Capacity of Single Pile
It is a complicated progress of interaction between pile and soil when pile is under both vertical load and horizontal load. This paper analyzes the variation of stress, strain, deformation and deflection of the pile body by finite element numerical simulation of single bored concrete pile under vertical load together with horizontal load. Based on the existing research results, conclusions could be that the vertical load can increase horizontal bearing capacity of the pile in sandy soils, but horizontal bearing capacity of the pile in clayey soils is more complicated. Hope that the simulation can provide some references for the design of pile foundation.
