DISCUSSION OF BUCKLING OF PARTIALLY EMBEDDED PILES IN SAND

THE WRITER DISCUSSES AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON THE BUCKLING OF PARTIALLY EMBEDDED PILES IN SAND. HOWEVER HE HAS DEVELOPEDED A METHOD TO PREDICT THE BUCKLING LOAD OF EITHER A PARTIALLY OR FULLY EMBEDDED PILE EITHER IN A COHESIVE OF COHESIONLESS SOIL, BASED ON THE UTILIZATION OF BOTH SOIL AND PILE PROPERTIES. THE PRINCIPLE OF THIS METHOD IS THAT WHEN A PILE FAILS IN BUCKLING, ITS DEFORMATION IN THE SOIL WILL CREATE AN ACTIVE EARTH PRESSURE CONDITION FOR ONE-HALF OF THE AREA OF CROSS SECTION OF THE PILE AND A PASSIVE EARTH PRESSURE, BOTH ACTIVE AND PASSIVE, (2) ADHESION OR FRICTIONAL FORCE, IN THE CASE OF COHESIVE OR COHESIONLESS SOIL, (3) POINT BEARING, AND (4) THE CRITICAL LOAD CAUSING THE PILE ALONE TO BUCKLE. A TABLE IS PRESENTED BY WAY OF USING THIS NEW APPROACH, AND THE FAILURE LOAD HAS BEEN CALCULATED FOR SEVERAL CASE HISTORIES INCLUDING THE AUTHOR'S TESTS AND COMPARED WITH THE ACTUAL VALUES.
