@article{Guo1997VERTICALLYLP, title={VERTICALLY LOADED PILES IN NON-HOMOGENEOUS MEDIA}, author={Wei Dong Guo and Mark F. Randolph}, journal={International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics}, year={1997}, volume={21}, pages={507-532} }

SUMMARY Analytical methods for the axial responses of piles can be classified under three broad categories of (1) simple but approximate analytical solutions, (2) one-dimensional numerical algorithms, (3) full axisymmetric analyses using boundary or finite element approaches. The first two categories rely on the so-called load transfer approach, with interaction between pile and soil determined by independent springs distributed along the pile shaft and at the pile base. The non-linear spring… Expand
