A finite element-based approach for predictions of rigid pile group stiffness efficiency in clays
(Springer Verlag, 2013-08-17)
This paper presents a finite element parametric study of several variables that affect the stiffness efficiency of rigidly capped pile groups with a view to developing a solution for preliminary design purposes. Previous ...
Pile group settlement estimation: suitability of nonlinear interaction factors
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-06)
In this paper, predictions of pile settlement determined by appropriate superposition of two-pile interaction factors are compared with those computed from continuum analysis. A finite-element package is used in conjunction ...
Numerical modelling of pile foundation angular distortion
In this paper, the PLAXIS 3-D Foundation finite element (FE) software package, in conjunction with the nonlinear Hardening Soil (HS) constitutive model, is employed in an extensive parametric study of the angular distortion ...
Prediction of pile settlement using artificial neural networks based on standard penetration test data
In recent years artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been applied to many geotechnical engineering problems with some degree of success. With respect to the design of pile foundations, accurate prediction of pile settlement ...
An improved experimental test set-up to study the performance of granular columns
(ASTM International, 2006-03)
This paper describes an innovative design of a newly developed large test setup for testing the performance of footings supported on soft clay reinforced with granular columns. This advanced testing method is used to examine ...
An analytical approach for the prediction of single pile and pile group behaviour in clay
In this paper, the 't-z method' is employed to describe the nonlinear behaviour of a single pile and is used to obtain simplified predictions of pile group behaviour by considering the interaction between two-piles in ...
