Pile-Soil Interaction Numerical Simulation Analysis of the Surface to Surface Contact Elements
Based on the experimental data in the literature, contact elements were used in the pile-soil interface and the pile-soil interaction was simulated by ANSYS in this paper. Compared with theoretical analysis of the literature, the effects of pile-soil interface on the mechanical parameters of contact elements under the pile-soil vertical load and soil physical parameters were obtained by ANSYS simulation. The results can be a guiding on the reasonable choice of parameters under complex loads.
