In this paper, by ANSYS software it is built that a computer simulation analyzing model according to the finite element method, which is analyzed that the failure mechanism of the main pile and the soil around the bearing expanded-plate of the Multi-Expanded-plates pile(the MEEP pile), it is qualitatively determined that the space between the bearing expanded-plates affect the bearing capacity of the single pile of the MEEP pile, and of which the lower limiting value is put forward, in order to provide the theoretical support to the actual design of the MEEP pile

Keywords: The finite element method, the space between the bearing expanded-plates, the multi-expanded-plates pile (the MEEP pile), bearing capacity of the single pile, influence.
