Buckling of Bucket Foundations : Sensitivity to shape imperfections during installation
Publication: Research - peer-review › Article in proceeding
In this paper, the risk of structural buckling during installation of large-diameter bucket foundations is addressed using numerical methods. Imperfect geometries are introduced based on the pre-buckling mode shapes from a linear Eigenvalue buckling analysis. Various imperfect geometries are introduced to reveal how sensitive the buckling load is to the mentioned imperfections. Including the first 21 mode shapes as imperfect geometries reduces the buckling pressure compared to only considering mode 1.
