BUCKLING OF FULLY AND PARTIALLY EMBEDED TAPERED PILES

BUCKLING BEHAVIOR OF FULLY AND PARTIALLY EMBEDED UNIFORMLY TAPERED PILES, TAKING LINEARLY DECREASING AXIAL FORCE DISTRIBUTION, IS ANALYZED BY ADOPTING THE RAYLEIGH-RITZ APPROACH AND MAKING USE OF THE BEAM VIBRATION FUNCTIONS. FROM THE RESULTS IT IS SEEN THAT EVEN THOUGH THE BUCKLING LOAD DECREASES CONSIDERABLY BECAUSE OF TAPER, EVEN FOR NORMAL TAPER, THE DECREASE IS MOSTLY COMPENSATED BY INCREASE IN BUCKLING LOADS DUE TO A HIGHER SKIN FRICTIONAL VALUES FOR SUCH PILES. THE RESULTS ALSO FOCUS ATTENTION TO THE NECESSITY OF CONSIDERING PROPER BOUNDARY CONDITIONS AND VARIATION OF SOIL MODULUS, AXIAL FORCE, AND MOMENT OF INERTIA IN EVALUATING BUCKLING LOADS. /AUTHOR/
