Abstract

In this study, installation of jacked piles in sand is simulated using Press-Replace Method (PRM) and Material Point Method (MPM) and the results are compared together. This comparison is important because a realistic and yet efficient simulation of installation of jacked piles is an appealing step towards the design and analysis of this type of displacement piles. It is shown that PRM as a method that is founded on small-strain finite element method can produce pile and soil responses that are in a promising agreement with those of MPM which is a finite-deformation analysis method.
