In order to study the low strain numerical simulation of piles, a three-dimensional axisymmetric viscoelastic model is established. The velocity response for transient vibration is obtained by solving the 3-D wave equations. A MATLAB program is compiled via using finite difference method. The correctness and rationality of the numerical calculation are verified by comparing theoretical result with measured curve. The characteristics of velocity response at pile top are shown through analyzing the simulated results with different viscoelastic parameters. A kind of under-reamed pile (named DX pile in China) is calculated numerically while combining with the engineering practice. And the characteristics of wave propagation in DX pile are reflected intuitively in axial plane wave field diagrams. The results have a certain guiding significance for engineering practice. © 2015, Indian Geotechnical Society.

Pipe piles need to be connected in actual projects for the design length constraints of a single pile. Nowadays, the main pile extension method is welding. The quality of welding joints will directly affect the bearing capacity and stability of pile foundation. During the construction process of pipe pile, the non-standard piling operation, changes of soil layers and other factors may make joints become loose or broken and lose the overall stability of pipe pile, leading to serious security problems in the end. In order to study low-strain integrity test effect on the detection of the pipe pile joints and correctly identify the quality of joints, a joint model is established according to the connection features of pipes pile Numerical simulation is carried out. Some conclusions are drawn by making model piles, conducting field tests and analyzing theoretical and test curves.

Indoor experiments were carried out on models with geometric similarity of 1:20 to study h-shaped anti-sliding piles mechanism. The load was applied in steps by a jack, and the moment and deformation patterns of three h-shaped anti-sliding piles with different row spacings and different beam positions were obtained. The pile-soil interaction model of h-shaped anti-sliding pile was established by finite element software ABAQUS; and several design parameters of pile were analyzed and optimized. The results show that the optimal pile row spacing is 5 times pile diameter; the optimal stiffness of connecting beam is 1.5 times of pile; the optimal embedded depth of pile is 3/8 of the length of front row pile. Finally, the conclusions were successfully applied to treatment of an actual landslide in Nanning.

To improve the computational efficiency of low-strain numerical simulation of piles, the variable step staggered grid finite difference method is introduced into the calculation of three-dimensional pile-soil model based on the traditional difference method. By differentiating three-dimensional elastic wave equation and introducing absorbing boundary conditions on the computational model interface, the low-strain numerical simulation of the response of piles is calculated under transient vertical excitating force. The results show that the computational accuracy is guaranteed and the computational process is more flexible and simple because of varied difference grids. The process can also reduce the memory requirements and the computational time. The absorbing boundary which absorbs the incident waves reaching the computational model interface is effective. The proposed method has achieved good effects on fitting low-strain measured curve and numerical simulation of asymmetric defective piles.

A PHC uplift pile with hold-hoop connection is proposed. Through theoretical analysis and example calculation, it is found that the pullout capacity of the connection pipe pile is improved significantly, and the connection is less prone to be destructed. In the actual engineering application, the effect of pile uplift is excellent. It may provide a more convenient and economical type of new pile for engineering application.

Shaking table test on the interaction between the pile group and super highrise building system on liquefiable foundation was conducted to reproduce the liquefaction-induced large deformation of the system in saturated sandy ground. The excess pore water pressure(EPWP) of ground, the natural frequency, the damping ratio, the strain of pile group, the contact pressure at the bottom of pile and the displacement at pile top was calculated and analyzed before and after large deformation. It was shown that the EPWP response in and out of pile group was different. The sand layer liquefied, the natural frequency of pile group decreased and the damping ratio of pile group increased with the raise of peak acceleration. The dynamic response of piles was relevant to both the peak acceleration and the spectral characteristic of earthquake wave. Besides, the peak strain of pile increased upward along pile body so that there were more cracks on the top of pile. The displacement of pile head varied with the seismic behavior. The primary cause of the large deformation of the system was revealed through the phenomenon which two corner piles were pulled up and pressed down alternately under excitation. Consequently, it is effective to improve the anti-seismic capacity of super highrise building-pile group system by strengthening compressive and tensile resistant property of pile and improving the liquefaction conditions of ground. © 2015, Science Press.

The exhibition hall of Hefei lakeside international convention center is shaped surface space grid and tube truss structure.in order to balance the horizontal force caused by the long span steel roof, the foundation beam with a span of 76.3m adopts bonded prestressed concrete beam, which is the longest span in China. In order to meet the design requirements to ensure the prestressed beams, using strain monitoring system to track and monitor the Strain rate of the prestressed beams and the steel strand. The results show that: For the similar design of prestressed concrete beams in this project, the need to consider calculating the Bearing capacity of the beam and crack computation of the tension before imposing beams prestressed tension; ordinary one end of tensioning prestressed concrete beam method is not suitable for the long prestressed girder which must be used at both ends of tension; the rule of the stress losses is not the same as the conventional prestressed concrete beam, it is necessary to revise the formula to adapt for calculating such long prestressed beams. © 2011 IEEE.

The force exerted on the pipe pile and cracks appear. The integrity of the pipe pile in different crack states is tested using the stress wave method, and then a comparative analysis is made in this paper. The experimental results indicate that stress wave method is a feasible approach to detect cracks in pipe pile. Stress wave method can identify small cracks (Width of 0.10 mm) in the experiment. Engineering examples show that the stress wave method is effective on the detection of crack in pipe pile.
