Description

Calculation of beams on elastic foundation is a part of the static of the structures in which the existing methods are still far from being answered in many problems that arise in the engineering practice. The size and distribution of the reactive pressures from the subgrade depend on the properties of the soil, the stiffness of the foundation, the stiffness of structure upon the foundation, the size and the position of the load which is transferred from the foundation to the subgrade, the depth of the foundation, etc. The problem of distributing reactive pressures of the subgrade in the continuum mechanics is known as the “beam on elastic foundation” or “the contact problem with the elasticity theory”. This problem is still part of the research of many scientists. On this paper is presented the impact of the subgrade consolidation process on the subgrade reaction coefficient values, the distribution of reactive pressures, and the increase of internal forces during the analysis of the beam on elastic foundation, using Winkler’s model as one of the most suitable models for dealing with this problem.

Keywords:

Subgrade, beam, foundation, elastic foundation, reactive pressures, Winkler model.
