Abstract

A rational and yet convenient approach is presented to account for the dynamic soil-pile interaction in the vertical vibration analysis of a nonlinear pile foundation. Once elastic soil properties and static complex unit load transfer curves are provided, the approach is capable of reproducing the dynamic and nonlinear conditions mutually coupled. The concept of the approach is verified by numerical analyses. The proposed approach is demonstrated for the prediction of vibration response of a selected pile foundation in the field. Both static load tests and vibration tests were conducted previously on this pile foundation. Inputs for the analysis are obtained from the previous static test results. The comparison of the predicted responses with those observed indicates that the proposed approach appears to be reasonable.

Prediction of Non-Linear Pile Foundation Response to Vertical Vibration

St. Louis, Missouri

A rational and yet convenient approach is presented to account for the dynamic soil-pile interaction in the vertical vibration analysis of a nonlinear pile foundation. Once elastic soil properties and static complex unit load transfer curves are provided, the approach is capable of reproducing the dynamic and nonlinear conditions mutually coupled. The concept of the approach is verified by numerical analyses. The proposed approach is demonstrated for the prediction of vibration response of a selected pile foundation in the field. Both static load tests and vibration tests were conducted previously on this pile foundation. Inputs for the analysis are obtained from the previous static test results. The comparison of the predicted responses with those observed indicates that the proposed approach appears to be reasonable.
