Abstract

Application of wave equation, in the analysis of pile behavior, under dynamic loading has started with Smith [9]. This paper presents a modified explicit numerical scheme, based on Smith's approach, which retains the simplicity and minimum storage requirement of Smith's scheme but offers a faster and more accurate solution near critical time step. Bearing capacity of pile is estimated through Poulos [8) scheme, after evaluating dynamic properties of soil from set value through this modified scheme. Observed load test results establish a good promise for this analysis.

Reliability of a Wave Equation Analysis in the Estimation of Static Bearing Capacity of a Vertical Pile--a Case Study

Application of wave equation, in the analysis of pile behavior, under dynamic loading has started with Smith [9]. This paper presents a modified explicit numerical scheme, based on Smith's approach, which retains the simplicity and minimum storage requirement of Smith's scheme but offers a faster and more accurate solution near critical time step. Bearing capacity of pile is estimated through Poulos [8) scheme, after evaluating dynamic properties of soil from set value through this modified scheme. Observed load test results establish a good promise for this analysis.
