STRESSES IN SOILS DUE TO VERTICAL LOAD ON PILES
The paper discusses an investigation in which stress coefficients have been obtained for shaft load treating it as ring load in a semi-infinite elastic medium and end bearing load separately using Mindlin expressions for a point load. Stress at any point in the adjoining soil medium can be obtained by compounding the two effects. The numerical integration procedure adopted allows for the evaluation of the stress coefficients even in the case of general variation of skin friction with depth and the distribution of the end bearing load on the contact surface.
