Analysis of Driven Pile Setup with Abaqus/Standard

SIMULIA's picture

Pullout resistance of driven foundation piles often in-creases with time in a process known as pile “setup.” The consolidation of the surrounding soil after the pile is driven plays a dominant role in the setup process. Finite element modeling of pile setup can help in obtaining reli-able estimates of the increase in pile resistance, which would allow for reductions in pile lengths, pile sections, or sizes of the pile driving equipment. The coupled pore fluid and stress analysis capabilities of Abaqus/Standard can be used for modeling the pile setup phenomenon and can help in estimating the increase in pile pullout resis-tance with time.
