A finite element-based approach for predictions of rigid pile group stiffness efficiency in clays
(Springer Verlag, 2013-08-17)
This paper presents a finite element parametric study of several variables that affect the stiffness efficiency of rigidly capped pile groups with a view to developing a solution for preliminary design purposes. Previous ...
Numerical modelling of pile foundation angular distortion
In this paper, the PLAXIS 3-D Foundation finite element (FE) software package, in conjunction with the nonlinear Hardening Soil (HS) constitutive model, is employed in an extensive parametric study of the angular distortion ...
