Abstract

In this study reinforced concrete piles having different diameters were compared using a nonlinear finite element method. The piles that were compared had different diameters, meaning they had different flexural rigidity and normal stiffness. The effects of piles (depth, diameter) and the properties of limestone on the soil response have been investigated. For the purposes of this investigation, Karataş region of Gaziantep city was chosen. It is observed that effective total displacements and bending moments increase as depth and loading increases, but effective stress decreases when increases in diameter of pile.
