Numerical modelling of laterally loaded piles in clay

Abstract:

The rapid expansion of the offshore wind industry in recent decades has led to an increased scrutiny of methods traditionally used to design piles in the offshore environment. Investigations by the industry have been performed using a multitude of methods including finite element analysis (FEA), centrifuge testing, and large scale field testing. In this thesis, a novel numerical technique termed finite element limit analysis (FELA) is used to investigate the limiting capacity of laterally ...
