LOAD DISTRIBUTION IN RECTANGULAR FOOTINGS ON PILES

THE INTERACTION WITH THE SUBGRADE OF RECTANGULAR FOOTINGS RESTING ON PILES IS STUDIED IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THE DISTRIBUTION OF COLUMN LOADS ON THE PILES AND THE SUBGRADE. THE PILES ARE TREATED AS INDEPENDENT ELASTIC SPRINGS WHILE THE SUBGRADE IS TREATED AS AN ELASTIC HALF-SPACE. THE FINITE DIFFERENCE TECHNIQUE IS EMPLOYED IN THE SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM. A PARAMETRIC STUDY IS CARRIED OUT BY VARYING THE PARAMETERS WHICH CHARACTERIZE THE PROPERTIES OF THE PILES AND THE SUBGRADE. THE RESULTS OBTAINED INDICATE THAT THE RESISTANCE OF THE SUBGRADE HAS CONSIDERABLE EFFECT ON THE SETTLEMENT OF FOOTINGS AND SHOULD BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION IN THE ANALYSIS IN ORDER TO PREDICT THE ELASTIC SETTLEMENT MORE REALISTICALLY. /AUTHOR/
