This study numerically analysed the characteristics of eco-spiral piles (Eco-SPs) as multi-purpose geotechnical supports. The behaviour of eco-spiral piles in the ground was studied with respect to their twisting angle and the ratio of borehole diameter to eco-spiral pile width using FLAC-3D based on the finite-difference method. A cement mortar grout was modelled to sustain the eco-spiral pile in a sandy soil. Relationships were found among the eco-spiral pile’s twisting angle, pull-out load and maximum shear stress. The results should aid the further design of the bolts for application in a range of circumstances.

Modelling pile capacity and load-settlement behaviour of piles embedded in sand & mixed soils using artificial intelligenceAlkroosh, Iyad Salim Jabor (2011)This thesis presents the development of numerical models which are intended to be used to predict the bearing capacity and the load-settlement behaviour of pile foundations embedded in sand and mixed soils. Two artificial ...
