Sample text

A major emphasis is given on the models developed and used by the authors of this book; appropriate references are cited for the use of other models. Thus, the reader can consult Appendix 1 for details of the constitutive models used in various chapters. Appendix 2 presents concise descriptions of various computer codes developed by the authors and used for the solution of problems in various chapters. The list also includes some other available computers codes that can be used for the solution of problems covered in this book.

However, in many practical situations, the pile can have variable geometry, the boundary conditions may be different and complex, and the soil resistance can be nonlinear and may vary with depth and displacement. Hence, to solve realistic problems, it is often necessary to resort to the use of numerical or 26 Advanced Geotechnical Engineering computer methods. Chief among those are the FD and FE methods. Now, we will describe the formulation of FD and FE methods for the 1-D pile problems. 1 Finite Difference Method The FD method is based on expressing the continuous derivatives in the governing differential equations (GDEs) by their finite or discreet values [17,18].

0. 0. 4 NUMERICAL SOLUTIONS The closed-form solutions used above are possible, but require a number of simplifying assumptions, for example, the pile has uniform geometry and is long, and the soil resistance is constant. However, in many practical situations, the pile can have variable geometry, the boundary conditions may be different and complex, and the soil resistance can be nonlinear and may vary with depth and displacement. Hence, to solve realistic problems, it is often necessary to resort to the use of numerical or 26 Advanced Geotechnical Engineering computer methods.
