Lateral Loading of a Shaft in Layered Soil Using the Strain Wedge


    The strain wedge (SW) model is an approach that has been developed to predict the response of a flexible pile under lateral loading (Norris 1986, Ashour et al. 1996 and Ashour et al. 1998). The main concept associated with the SW model is that traditional one-dimensional Beam on Elastic Foundation (BEF) pile response parameters can be characterized in terms… (More)
