Experiment-5: Cyclic Loading of Single Piles-Centrifuge Model No.2
|
DOI:10.4231/D35D8NF9W
Experiment Type: Centrifuge
Description: In this test, cyclic lateral loading behavior of single piles in unimproved and cement-improved soft clay was investigated. Dimensions (length x width x depth) of the improved ground were: 9Dx9Dx6D, 13Dx13Dx9D and 17Dx17Dx12D. D (= 9.52 mm) is the outside diameter of the pile. Note that all the quantities reported are in model scale. The test was carried out at a centrifugal acceleration of 30 g. Piles are defined in the format of YDUV. Where, YD represents the depth of ground improvement and can be 0D, 6D, 9D or 12D. 0D indicates the unimproved pile. U and V are the two letters assigned to opposite sides of each pile. Along each pile, six pairs of strain gages from U1V1 through U6V6 were instrumented to measure bending moments. Cyclic lateral loading tests were conducted on the following piles in the order specified: 0DCD, 9DKL, 6DGH, 12DMN, 0DAB, and 6DEF. During the cyclic loading tests, horizontal displacements under a series of lateral pushing and pulling were applied to the pile top starting with small displacements and eventually reaching a lateral displacement of 24.13 mm all the piles except the pile 12DMN. The maximum lateral displacement for 12DMN was 7.62 mm.

This experiment consists of the following tests:

Cyclic loading on pile 0DCD (05/04/2010)
Cyclic loading on pile 9DKL (05/05/2010)
Cyclic loading on pile 6DGH (05/06/10)
Cyclic loading on pile 12DMN (05/07/10)
Cyclic loading on pile 0DAB (05/11/10)
Cyclic loading on pile 6DEF (05/12/10)
