Abstract: Variation of axial force along the embedded length of the piles and boundary conditions have considerable influence on the buckling loads of piles. Partially embedded and some fully embedded piles are vulnerable to buckling. Furthermore, buckling loads are useful in the study of the behavior of axially and laterally loaded piles. Therefore, using beam vibration functions and the Rayleight-Ritz energy method, buckling loads have been obtained for fully and partially embedded piles. Numerical results have been obtained for axial force variation and different boundary conditions assuming constant and linear soil modulus variation with depth for clays and sands, respectively.
