Strengthening of the Soil
The program can model strenghtening of the soil at the heel of sheeting structure. The strenghtening of the soil is performed after installation of piles, or walls which are grouted at the base of the wall. The decisive parameters are height of strengthened soil hs, or width of strengthened soil ws and parameters of strengthened soil (φ, c).
The principle of solution is shown in the following figure.
Strenghtening of the soil at the base of sheeting structure - graphic presentation of the principle of solution
The principle of calculation for strenghtening of the soil at the base of sheeting structure is described herein:
new layer of strengthened soil
ratio (auxiliary parameter)
arbitrary parameter at ith layer of soil
original parameter at ith layer of soil
new parameter of strengthened soil
width of strengthened soil [m]
height of strengthened soil [m]
