AbstractA kinematically admissible displacement field describing the movement of the particles of a clay body surrounding a single prebored end-bearing vertical pile is used to obtain the nature and variation of the tangential component of the traction vector acting on the pile surface. The clay is assumed to be saturated, uniform and underlain by bedrock having a surface loading of p 1[~](t) where 1[~](t) is the unit step function.
