2D numerical modeling of sand compaction pile in soft soil under railway embankment

Performance of SCP improved ground has been studied using software aided 2D & 3D Finite Element (FE) models. A challenge in modeling of 3D practical scenario in 2D model was solved utilizing simulation of drainage path in 2D plane. A new method for simulation of drainage path in 2D model was proposed, keeping the replacement ratio and diameter of SCP unchanged. The result from analyses indicated that proposed method of equivalent 2D idealization of 3D problem simulated both consolidation and stability.
