RESPONSE OF INITIALLY BENT AND IMPERFECT PILES TO VERTICAL LOADS

It is known that the piles when driven may not be perfectly straight. A number of cases are reported recently in which long slender piles have become bent during driving. Distortion of the pile from the vertical axis is caused due to various reasons. The response of bent and imperfect piles to vertical loads is studied and various boundary conditions for the piles are considered. The effect of modulus on the lateral deflections of bent and imperfect piles is presented. (TRRL)
