Lateral load

The effect of soil constitutive models, nonlinearity of the barrette material, loading direction as well as the cross-sectional shape and second moment of inertia on the response the barrette foundation under lateral loading is investigated in this research. The numerical analyses were conducted on a well-documented barrette load test using Plaxis 3D. T...

A set of crosswise-loaded flexible piles was tested in binder stabilised top sand layers embedded in lightly bonded residual soil. Slope indicators were used to measure horizontal displacements in free-headed flexible piles during all loading stages. The geometry of the cement stabilised top sand layer surrounding the piles varied from about 2 to 4 time...

A new kind of reinforced Deep Cement Mixing (DCM) pile, namely: Stiffened Deep Cement Mixing (SDCM) pile is introduced to mitigate the problems due to the low flexural resistance, lack of quality control in the field and unexpected failure of DCM pile. The SDCM pile consists of DCM pile reinforced with precast concrete core pile. Previously, the full sc...
