Abstract

An analytical model is presented for solving the longitudinal complex impedance of a large-diameter floating pile in viscoelastic surrounding soil with radial heterogeneity and viscous-type damping, taking the effect of three-dimensional wave propagation of soil and lateral inertia of the pile shaft into account. The corresponding analytical solution for longitudinal impedance is also derived and validated via comparisons with existing solutions. The influences of the pile length, Poisson’s ratio of the pile shaft and the viscous damping coefficient, as well as the degree and radius of disturbed surrounding soil, on the longitudinal impedance of the pile shaft are examined by performing parametric analyses. It is demonstrated that the proposed analytical model and solution are suitable for the longitudinal vibration problem of a large-diameter pile and radially inhomogeneous surrounding soil, especially when the pile slenderness is low. In addition, the present solution can be easily degenerated to describe the longitudinal vibration problem relating to a large-diameter floating pile in radially homogenous soil or a pile with fixed-end supports
