Cosic M.: Finite Element Analysis of a Pile in Nonlinear Behaviour of Soil, Geotechnical Aspects of Civil Engineering, Soko Banja, Serbia, 2007, pp. 303-310.

Abstract

This paper shows a numerical model of pile exposed by influence of moment, horizontal and vertical load. Pile model was formed with one-dimensionally finite elements, where introduced nonlinear behavior using real rigidity and capacity of cross-section at ends of the finite elements. Soil was modeled using linear support which introduced interaction between pile-soil, until behavior model is nonlinear-elastic. Using incremental-iterative procedure analyzed behavior of pile under different increments of load, and shown competent static influence along pile.
