An analysis, previously developed for evaluating the settlement of a pile in homogeneous soil, is extended to the case of nonhomogeneous soils. Comparisons with finite element solutions suggest that the analysis gives solutions of adequate accuracy for practical purposes. A series of parametric solutions is presented for a pile in a Gibson soil in which the modulus increases linearly with depth. The analysis is also found to be applicable to piles in a layered soil, except in the case where the… CONTINUE READING
