Pressure distribution around a laterally loaded pile

Auther : MOSAID M. AL-HUSSAINI

Department of Civil Engineering, University of Kuwait

 

ABSTRACT

 

In this study a closed form solution is derived for the determination of stress distribution in soil surrounding a laterally loaded pile. The solution is presented in the form of influence charts to enable quick and easy determination of normal and shear stresses induced by the lateral thrust acting on the pile. Comparison is made between normal stresses obtained from this study and those obtained under an infinite strip loaded with uniform pressure. The theoretical analysis showed that the geometry of the pile surface greatly influenced the pressure distribution within the surrounding soil.
