Engineering kinematic theory in application to the calculation of pile foundations

Grounds and foundations, underground structures

The author has proposed a variant of calculation of pile foundation with the use of the engineerin kinematic theory of ground contact pressure. This calculation uses two separate graph connection, the pressure – vertical or horizontal offset. The diagrams are dimensionless, so is not related to the scale of the building. The absolute values of the end points of the graphs are determined considering the plastic deformation modulus of the soil. Diagram enables the calculation of pile foundation for the entire load cycle. Practical implementation of calculations uses variable from of the depth and the load of the coefficient stiffness soil. The author considered the combined model the stiffness of the soil based on the structural surrounding the pile. The article presents fragments of the calculation of stresses and displacements of pile foundations.
