THE EFFECT OF BOND BETWEEN SOIL AND LATERALLY LOADED PILE

BASED ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF BOND BETWEEN LOADED SOIL AND ROUGH PILES, A METHOD OF CALCULATING LATERALLY LOADED PILE GROUPS ('BAR WALLS') IS PRESENTED. THE BAR WALLS CONSIST OF THIN PILES WITH A HIGH SKIN FRICTION, USUALLY 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 THE BOND WITHIN THE WALL. THE REST OF THE BENDING MOMENT IS TRANSFORMED INTO INNER AXIAL LOADS (EQUAL COMPRESSIVE AND TENSILE FORCES). /TRRL/
