Strengthening of the Soil
The program can model strengthening of the soil at the heel of sheeting structure. The strengthening 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.
Strengthening of the soil at the base of sheeting structure - graphic presentation of the principle of solution
The principle of calculation for strengthening of the soil at the base of the sheeting structure is described herein:
new layer of the strengthened soil
ratio (auxiliary parameter)
arbitrary parameter at ith layer of the soil
original parameter at ith layer of the soil
new parameter of the strengthened soil
width of the strengthened soil [m]
height of the strengthened soil [m]
