In oceanographic engineering, it is the most important factor of the bearing capacity of pile, which is the function of the CEP pile. This paper takes the concrete expanded-plates pile (CEP pile) as the research object, and conducts theoretical analysis on the influence of the moisture content of fine-salty sand towards its uplift bearing capacity and the failure state of the soil around the pile. By conducting simulation using the ANSYS finite element software, this paper analyzes the displacement, stress, strain of the CEP pile and other results under different moisture contents, so as to determine the optimal moisture content for setting bearing plates in the fine-silty sand, and to provide reliable theoretical basis for the reasonable design and application of the CEP pile.
