About the Project
The proposed research project will utilise laboratory techniques and mathematical modelling to simulate different scenarios of model piles installed with support fluids of different properties in soils of different properties. Lateral load tests on piles will be performed in a custom-built chamber accommodating model piles of various materials and dimensions, instrumented with strain gauges, displacement transducers and load cells. The chamber will hold a low to medium permeability soil acted upon by a variable surcharge and instrumented with pore pressure sensors and displacement transducers. All instruments will be monitored on a data logger to facilitate automatic data capture. The load-deformation responses of the piles will be monitored to failure for different cases of support fluids and pile installation method. Numerical simulation will also be performed using a 3D finite element program such as MIDAS or PLAXIS.
