Theory and Practice of Pile Foundations by Wei Dong Guo


During the last 20 years or so, I’ve witnessed and grown to understand the issue undergraduate college students generally have in greedy geotechnical programs. Geotechnical programs have many new ideas and indigestible expressions to initially be memorized. The expressions, which usually originate from superior elastic mechanics, plastic mechanics, and numerical approaches, are technical and not simply accessible to college students. 

To resolve the issue, our analysis decision has been to attenuate the quantity of strategies and enter parameters for every technique and to resolve as many issues as attainable. We imagine this can permit simpler entry to studying, observe, and integration into additional analysis. Piles, as a preferred basis kind, are incessantly used to switch superstructure load into subsoil and stiff-bearing layer and to switch affect of surcharge owing to soil motion and/or lateral drive into underlying layers. .


They’re conventionally made of metal, concrete, timber, and artificial supplies (Fleming et al. 2009) and have been used because the Neolithic Age (6,000~7,000 years in the past) (Shi et al. 2006). Their use is somewhat in depth and numerous. For example, in 2006, ~50 million piles have been put in in China, ranging (in sequence of excessive to low proportion) from metal pipe piles, bored cast-in-place piles, hand-dug piles, precast strengthened concrete piles, pre-stressed concrete pipe piles, and pushed cast-in-place piles to squeezed department piles. 

It’s crucial that any technique of design ought to permit dependable design parameters to be gained in a cheap method. Extra parameters typically imply extra problem in warranting a verified and expeditious design. We try to plan design strategies that require fewer parameters however resolve extra issues. This has yielded a scientific strategy to mannequin pile response within the context of load switch fashions. That is summarized on this ebook of 13 chapters.


Chapter 2 offers a succinct abstract of typical strategies for estimating bearing capability (together with damaging pores and skin friction) of single piles and pile teams. Chapter 3 recaptures pile–soil interplay fashions underneath vertical, lateral, or torsional loading. Chapters 4 and 5 mannequin the response of vertically loaded piles underneath static and cyclic loading and time-dependent habits, respectively. The mannequin is developed to estimate settlement of giant pile teams in Chapter 6. A variational strategy is employed to infer an elastic mannequin of lateral piles in Chapter 7, incorporating typical base and head constraints.

The pu-based mannequin is additional developed to imitate a nonlinear response of laterally loaded pile teams (see Chapter 11) and to design passive piles in Chapter 12. The mechanism about passive piles is revealed in Chapter 13 utilizing 1-g mannequin assessments. General, Chapter 3 offers a time-dependent load switch mannequin that captures pile–soil interplay underneath vertical loading in Chapters 4 by 6.
