Settlement prediction
<p>Classical theory of consolidation was conceived considering loads instantaneously applied. Since then, researchers have addressed this issue by suggesting graphical and/or analytical solutions to incorporate different time-depending load schemes. The simplest alternative is to assume a linearly increasing load. Another approach to predict the average de...

The behavior of experimental pile groups is simulated by 3-D finite element modeling in this paper. The modeled results are compared to small-scale tests in a row of three closely spaced piles in the London clay. The tests aimed at investigating soil-pile-cap interaction and pile-group effect. It is shown that 3-D FE modeling can be regarded as an appropriate to...
