ON THE DETERMINATION OF THE HORIZONTAL SUBGRADE REACTION

THE RAPID DEVELOPMENT OF BORING TECHNIQUES HAS RESULTED IN A RAPID INCREASE IN THE DIMENSIONS OF CAST-IN-PLACE PILES. THE AVAILABLE LARGE DIAMETERS PERMIT THE USE OF VERTICAL INSTEAD OF BATTER PILES FOR THE SUPPORT OF HORIZONTAL LOADS. THE STRESS ANALYSIS OF THESE PILES CAN BE CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF BEAM-ON-ELASTIC-FOUNDATION THEORY WHICH INVOLVES THE SUBGRADE REACTION CONCEPT. THE INCREASING IMPORTANCE OF THIS CONCEPT MAKES IT APPROPRIATE TO SUMMARIZE AND EVALUATE THE METHODS AVAILABLE FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THIS COEFFICIENT, AND TO SUGGEST A QUICK AND RELIABLE PROCEDURE FOR THE SELECTION OF THE HORIZONTAL SUBGRADE REACTION. /AUTHOR/
