Soil Mechanics


A rigidly plastic model is proposed for analysis of interaction between pile rows and soil flows. The limiting forces acting on the pile elements of anti-slide structures are determined from the field of slip lines calculated by the method of boundary elements. Results of calculations from a program developed for a personal computer made it possible to derive a relationship between the stresses developed when soil is forced between the piles and their spacing in the row.
