Abstract

The helical piles have been being treated as a kind of novel foundation for offshore wind turbines recently, due their fast installation, high uplift capacity, convenience for recycling, and other advantages. The recycling of the helical pile especially will reduce the cost significantly and protect the environment as much as possible. However, the research for this area is basically in infancy and there is no reference for predicting the recycling torque of a helical pile in sand. In order to predict the recycling torque of single-plate helical piles in dense sand: a theoretical model, which was inspired by the way to predict the installation torque of single-plate helical pile in sand, was..
