THE BEARING CAPACITY OF RIGID PILES UNDER INCLINED LOADS IN SAND- I: VERTICAL PILES

THE BEARING CAPACITY OF RIGID VERTICAL AND BATTER PILES UNDER INCLINED LOADS IN SAND HAS BEEN DETERMINED FOR MODEL PILES OF DIFFERENT DEPTH/DIAMETER RATIOS. THE FIRST PART OF THIS PAPER DEALS WITH VERTICAL PILES AND THE SECOND PART WILL CONSIDER BATTER PILES. THE RESULTS OF LOADING TESTS ON FREE STANDING AND PILED FOUNDATIONS UNDER INCLINATIONS OF LOAD VARYING FROM VERTICAL TO HORIZONTAL ARE ANALYZED. ON THE BASIS OF PLASTIC THEORY, A NEW APPROACH FOR ANALYSIS OF RIGID VERTICAL PILES UNDER HORIZONTAL LOADS IS DEVELOPED BY EXTENDING BRINCH HANSEN'S METHOD; AND PREVIOUS METHODS OF ANALYSIS BY MEYERHOF ARE EXTENDED TO ESTIMATE THE BEARING OF VERTICAL PILES UNDER INCLINED LOADS IN SAND. LOADS IN VERTICAL PILES ARE FOUND TO BE IN REASONABLE AGREEMENT WITH THE PROPOSED THEORIES. /RTAC/
