ANALYSIS OF THE MOVEMENTS OF BATTERED PILES

ANALYSES ARE MADE OF THE AXIAL DISPLACEMENT OF A BATTERED PILE IN AN ELASTIC SOIL MASS SUBJECT TO AXIAL LOADING, AND OF THE NORMAL DISPLACEMENT DUE TO NORMAL LOADING AND MOMENT. IT IS FOUND THAT THESE DISPLACEMENTS ARE ALMOST INDEPENDENT OF THE ANGLE OF BATTER OF THE PILE OVER A PRACTICAL RANGE OF BATTER ANGLES, SO THAT AVAILABLE SOLUTIONS FOR A VERTICAL PILE MAY BE USED TO ANALYSE RELATIVELY SIMPLY THE MOVEMENTS OF A BATTERED PILE UNDER A GENERAL LOADING SYSTEM. THE SIMPLIFIED METHOD OF ANALYZING A SINGLE PILE IS EXTENDED TO THE CONSIDERATION OF GROUPS CONTAINING BATTERED PILES. /AUTHOR/
