Analysis of Piled Rafts

 

by the program ELPLA

 

Today, nearly every engineering office has its own computer programs for the analysis and design of piled rafts. Furthermore, most of the available programs under Windows are user-friendly and give very excellent output graphics with colors. Consequently, theoretically a secretary not an engineer can use them. But the problem here is how can man control the data and check the results.

The purpose of this book is to present methods, equations, procedures and techniques used in the formulation of the computer analysis of piled rafts. These items are coded in the program ELPLA.

 

This book contains many practical problems which are analyzed in details by using the program ELPLA. It is important for the engineer to be familiar with this information when carrying out computer analysis of piled rafts. An understanding of these concepts will be of great benefit in carrying out the computer analysis, resolving difficulties and judging the acceptability of the results. Three familiar types of subsoil models (standard models) for piled raft analyses are considered. The models are Simple Assumption Model, Winkler’s Model and Continuum Model. In the analysis, rafts are treated as elastic or rigid. In this book the Finite Element-Method was used to analyze the raft, in which plate bending elements represent the raft according to the two-dimensional nature of foundation. The development of the finite element equations for plate elements is well documented in standard textbooks such as Schwarz (1984) and Zienkiewicz/ Cheung (1970). Therefore, it is not duplicated in this book.

Berechnung von Pfahl-Plattengründungen

 

mit dem Programm ELPLA

 

Heute hat fast jedes Ingenieurbüro seine eigenen Computerprogramme zur Berechnung und zum Entwurf von Pfahl-Plattengründungen. Dazu sind die meisten verfügbaren Programme unter Windows benutzerfreundlich und bieten ausgezeichnete graphische Farbdarstellungen, sodass theoretisch eine Sekretärin, nicht nur ein Ingenieur, diese verwenden kann. Aber das Problem dabei ist, wie man die Daten kontrollieren und die Ergebnisse überprüfen kann.

 

Der Zweck dieses Buches ist, Methoden, Gleichungen, Verfahren und Techniken zu zeigen, die bei der Formulierung der Computerberechnung von Pfahl-Plattengründungen verwendet werden. Diese Sachgebiete sind im Programm ELPLA codiert.

 

 

Dieses Buch zeigt viele praktische Probleme, die mit Verwendung des Programms ELPLA be­rechnet werden können. Es ist wichtig, dass der Ingenieur mit diesen Informationen vertraut ist, wenn er Computerberechnungen von Pfahl-Plattengründungen durchführt. Ein Verständnis dieser Konzepte ist von großem Nutzen beim Ausführen der Computerberechnung, zur Lösung von Schwierig­keiten und zur Entscheidung der Annehmbarkeit der Ergebnisse. Drei bekannte Baugrund­modelle zur Berechnung von Pfahlplatten (Standardmodelle) werden berücksichtigt. Die Bau­grundmodelle sind Einfaches Annahme-Modell (Spannungstrapezverfahren), Winkler-Modell (Bettungsmodulverfahren) und Kontinuum-Modell (Steifemodulverfahren). In der Berechnung werden die Platten als elastisch oder starr behandelt. In diesem Buch wird die Finite Element-Methode verwendet, um Platten zu berechnen. In der finiten Elementberechnung wird die Platte von Plattenelementen entsprechend der zweidimensionalen Natur des Fundaments dargestellt. Die Entwicklung der finiten Element­gleichungen für Plattenelemente ist in Standardlehrbüchern dokumentiert wie bei Schwarz (1984) und Zienkiewicz/ Cheung (1970). Sie wird deshalb nicht in diesem Buch dupliziert.

كتاب قدرة تحمل وهبوط الخوازيق

Theory for the calculation of bearing capacity of piles by ELPLA

 

 

يعتمد تصميم الخوازيق التي يزيد قطرها عن 60سم و المنفذة بواسطة التثقيب الاعتيادي و المصبوبة في مكانها         (bored piles) على مقدار الهبوط, حيث يتم تقدير علاقة الحمل مع الهبوط من نتائج تجربة تحميل. و في حالة عدم توافر نتائج تجربة تحميل يمكن الرجوع إلى المواصفات المحلية أو العالمية التي تقدر هذه العلاقة من علاقات وضعية نتيجة الخبرة العملية و الدراسات الإحصائية لتلك العلاقة من اختبارات عدة لظروف متعددة. وفي الغالب يكون الهبوط مقدرا كنسبة من قطر كعب الخازوق. وتقسم هذه العلاقات للخوازيق في حالتين أساسيتين وهما الأولى عندما تكون الخوازيق مخترقة تربة متماسكة الحبيبات (طينية صرفة) والثانية في تربة مفككة الحبيبات (رملية صرفة).

في هذا الكتاب يتم عرض هذه العلاقة مقدرة في أثنين من المواصفات المحلية والعالمية:

1- قدرة تحمل وهبوط الخوازيق المنشأة بالتثقيب طبقاً للكود المصري

2- قدرة تحمل وهبوط الخوازيق المنشأة بالتثقيب طبقاً للمواصفات الألمانية DIN 4014

وذلك لفهم الفروق بينهما. تم في آخر هذا الكتاب وضع أمثلة محلولة يدويا وتم التحقق من النتائج باستخدام برنامج

Stresses in Soil

by the Program Quick ELPLA

This book describes the essential equations used in Quick ELPLA to obtain stresses in soil with some verification examples. The problems of stresses in soil outlined in this book can be also analyzed by the program ELPLA and the same results can be obtained. Quick ELPLA is a simple user interface program and needs little information to define a problem. It is prefer to use it for a simple foundation geometry. Furthermore, ELPLA can also read data files of a problem of stress in soil defined by Quick ELPLA. User can analyze the problem again by ELPLA.

 

 

Although the numerical procedure outlined here is valid for loaded areas of any arbitrary shape, but only the two special cases of loaded areas; rectangular and circular, in addition to the point load are taken into consideration.

Analysis of Axisymmetric Structures and Tanks by the Program ELPLA

Part I: Numerical models

This book describes procedures and methods available in ELPLA to analyze circular cylindrical shells structures. It is also considered, circular cylindrical tank resting on any layered compressible soil as one unit taking into account the soil-structure interaction effect.
The purpose of this text is to present the methods, equations, procedures, and techniques used in the formulation and development of the ELPLA function for analyzing tanks on different subsoil models. It is of value to be familiar with this information when using the software.
An understanding of these concepts will be of great benefit in applying the software, resolving difficulties and judging the acceptability of the results.
Two familiar types of subsoil models are considered, Winkler’s model and Continuum model. In addition, the simple assumption model is also considered. This model assumes linear contact pressure on the base of the tank.
The mathematical solution of the circular cylindrical tanks is based on the Finite Element Method using axi-symmetric circular cylindrical shell elements.
In which, axi-symmetric shell finite elements represent the tank wall and tank base according to the nature geometry of the structure.
Based on his M.Sc. research, El Gendy, O. (2016) had carried out a numerical modification on the methods in ELPLA for analyzing rafts to be applicable for analyzing cylindrical water storage tanks. Many tested examples are presented to verify and illustrate the available methods. Some of verification examples for analyzing cylindrical water storage tanks on multi-layered soil carried out by El Gendy, O. (2016) are presented in the second part of this book
