Consideration of Contraction of Loose Soil During Analysis of Cast-in-Place Piles

  • 49 Accesses

  • 1 Citations

Results are presented for numerical investigations of the interaction between a single cast-in-place pile and a bed composed of loose sand. The limiting vertical load on the pile and its settlements are compared as a function of the method used to account for soil contraction.
