The Analytical Solution of Single Pipe Piles under Axially and Laterally Free Loads
The analytical solution of a single pipe piles under axially and laterally loads is presented, when the laterally loads is optional free load. As piles foundations are becoming a preferred foundation type, piles usually work under simultaneous axial and lateral loads in engineering. To analyze the function of free loads to pipe piles under inclined loads conditions, in the basis of ‘m’ method, deformation differential equation of elastic piles under inclined loads is established first in the paper with analytical method. Differential equation has two parts in according to the piles in the earth or in the air, and lateral deformation, obliquity, moment; shearing force of the piles can be gotten respectively by soluting equations. In the end of the paper, influences of several parameters is analyzed of the top axial loads, the top lateral loads and the free loads, and their influence curves are given.
