Influence of Soil Stiffness and of End Support Conditions of a Pile in its Buckling Force
Pages : 195-200
The aim of this work is to analyze the effects of soil stiffness and of pile end conditions into the buckling force of the pile
fully embedded on ground and subject to only axial compression force. The pile buckling force is analyzed for the case
when the modulus of soil reaction is k=0, k=const and k=nh∙x. The software SAP 2000 is used for analysis.
Keywords: Pile, buckling force, buckling length, modulus of soil reaction.
