The purpose of the paper is to research the vertical bearing capacity and settlement idiosyncracies of prestressed concrete piles. In-situ experiments, which was carried out by anchor-pile beam counterforce device, and numerical analysis methods was adopted as research methods on 3 tested piles. Mohr-Coulomb model was employed as the constitutive model of soil mass and isotropic elastic damage model as the constitutive model of piles to analyze its yield functions. Furthermore, the basic idea of modelling large deformation problems was analyzed based on Finite Difference Method (FDM). The comparison results was obtained in the paper and it suggested that the simulated data is highly identical with the experimental ones. Load-settlement curve basically presents a quadratic function form.
