Abstract

The need for a better understanding of soil pile interaction problem under dynamic loading especially in a nonlinear soil medium has always been felt by engineers. This paper presents a PC based Finite Element I Finite Difference analysis of a Three Dimensional soil pile interaction problem in Elasto Plastic soil under transient and periodic dynamic loading. Assuming separation of variable is permitted method of Finite Element has been used over space and then the solution proceeds over time by explicit integration. Numerical experimentation with a 3 x 3 x 3 model offers a stable response which (qualitatively) with Green's function obtained by other authors. Permanent settlement in elasto plastic soil under periodic loading has also been obtained.

Response of Pile Under Dynamic Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

The need for a better understanding of soil pile interaction problem under dynamic loading especially in a nonlinear soil medium has always been felt by engineers. This paper presents a PC based Finite Element I Finite Difference analysis of a Three Dimensional soil pile interaction problem in Elasto Plastic soil under transient and periodic dynamic loading. Assuming separation of variable is permitted method of Finite Element has been used over space and then the solution proceeds over time by explicit integration. Numerical experimentation with a 3 x 3 x 3 model offers a stable response which (qualitatively) with Green's function obtained by other authors. Permanent settlement in elasto plastic soil under periodic loading has also been obtained.
