Abstract

The dynamic soil-pile interaction problem is solved by the method of characteristics. The nonlinear, non-homogeneous problem was idealized as a piecewise linear problem. The numerical instability of semi-infinite soil column model has been reported, and a stable model, wherein the soil column below, the pile tip is replaced by a single spring and dashpot, has also been presented. The results obtained from the method of characteristics have been compared with those obtained by explicit finite difference scheme. The convergence and stability were studied numerically.

Dynamic Plasticity in Pile-Soil Interaction Problems

St. Louis, Missouri

The dynamic soil-pile interaction problem is solved by the method of characteristics. The nonlinear, non-homogeneous problem was idealized as a piecewise linear problem. The numerical instability of semi-infinite soil column model has been reported, and a stable model, wherein the soil column below, the pile tip is replaced by a single spring and dashpot, has also been presented. The results obtained from the method of characteristics have been compared with those obtained by explicit finite difference scheme. The convergence and stability were studied numerically.
