on [ 5 ]. This model represents Hooke’s law of isotropic linear elasticity used for modeiling the stress–strain relationship of the pile material. The model involves two elastic stiffness parameters, namely, the effective Young’s modulus, E ’, and the effective Poisson’s ratio, ν ’. Soil Model : The surrounding soil is represented by Mohr–Coulomb’s model. This elasto-plastic model is based on soil parameters that are known in most practical situations. The model involves two main parameters, namely, the cohesion intercept, c ’, and the friction angle, f ’. In

1 Introduction In soil and rock mechanics, the Mohr-Coulomb (MC) shear strength criterion, along with its parameters, namely friction angle and cohesion, is treated as a kind of standard and reference concept for other shear strength criteria. This is due to the fact, that it fits well the experimental data, where asymmetric strength response in triaxial compression (TXC) and triaxial extension (TXE) tests is observed. Moreover, the MC criterion parameters have clear engineering interpretation and they are typically obtained in most geotechnical
