THE EFFECT OF BOND BETWEEN SOIL AND LATERALLY LOADED PILE GROUPS

BASED ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF BOND BETWEEN SOIL AND ROUGH PILES, A METHOD OF CALCULATING LATERALLY PILE GROUPS ('BAR WALLS') IS PRESENTED. THE BAR WALLS CONSIST OF THIN PILES WITH A HIGH SKIN FRICTION, USUSALLY ANCHORED. THE EFFECT OF THE BOND IS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT BY ASSUMING A COMMON NEUTRAL AXIS FOR THE WHOLE UNDERPINNING SYSTEM. THUS THE MAXIMUM BENDING MOMENT CAN BE REDUCED BY A SEMI-EMPIRICAL FACTOR WHICH INDICATES THE INTENSITY OF BOND WITHIN THE WALL. THE REST OF THE BENDING MOMENT IS TRANSFORMED INTO INNER AXIAL LOADS (EQUAL COMPRESSIVE AND TENSILE FORCES). SEE ALSO IRRD ABSTRACT NO. 100334.
