where EI is the flexural stiffness of a pile and [p.sub.i](y, z) is the soil resistance of sloping ground.
As we can learn from Figure 8, the depth of the maximum moment increases from about 10 cm (1.6 D, D is the pile diameter) below ground level in even ground (9 = 0[degrees]) to 22.5 cm (3.6 D) and 36 cm (5.6 D) below ground level in sloping ground of 30[degrees] and 60[degrees] in slope angle, respectively.
Sloping the keyboard downward may increase forearm pronation and thereby increase ulnar deviation at the wrist.
In theory, the increase in ulnar deviation from sloping the keyboard negatively may mitigate the health benefit of decreased wrist extension from negatively sloped keyboards.
Figures 18-20 show the bending moment variation along pile length of the pile for different normalized distance B/D on horizontal ground and sloping ground ([theta] = 10[degrees], 30[degrees], 50[degrees]).
An example is used for pile head deflection, when the value of a is equal to 0, the pile head deflection values of pile in sloping ground with [theta] = 10[degrees], 30[degrees], 50[degrees] is increased by 7.4%, 39.8%, 137%, respectively, compared to that in horizontal ground.
In particular, the stability of slope must be ensured before the three-dimensional calculation of the laterally loaded piles in sloping ground.
Here, different sorts of professionals, including architects, engineers and scientists, working on projects for different parts of the world are both exposed to mutual view on their different levels, and united as common participants in a single enterprise by the embrace of the sloping roof.
