    Abstract

    At Delft University, research was conducted on the validation of the numerical model components of a model to determine the bending moments in slender piles of a Load Transfer Platform (LTP) using the 2D and 3D FEM software PLAXIS. A reliability analysis of PLAXIS was applied on the following five aspects: soil arching, pull-out behaviour of a geogrid, direct shear behaviour of a geogrid, laterally loaded piles by a horizontal force on the pile cap and laterally loaded piles by an embankment. The reliability analysis of PLAXIS for all different aspects is based on an executed laboratory test. The information about the test is obtained from literature.
