LATERAL LOADS ON PILES

VERTICAL PILES AND PILES LOADED AGAINST THE BATTER EXHIBIT ABOUT THE SAME ALLOWABLE LATERAL LOAD CAPACITY WHETHER THE CRITERIA FOR SELECTION BE DEFLECTION, MAXIMUM MOMENT OR ULTIMATE CAPACITY. THE SOIL-PILE CAPABILITY OF PILES LOADED WITH THE BATTER IS LESS THAN THE CAPACITY OF THE TWO CASES LISTED ABOVE BUT WOULD HAVE AN ADVANTAGE WHEN VERTICAL LOADS ARE ACTING DUE TO THE MORE FAVORABLE RELATIONSHIP OF THE COMPONENTS NORMAL TO THE PILE. PILES DRIVEN IN GROUPS CAN EFFECTIVELY DEVELOP TWICE THE CAPACITY OF SINGLE PILES, AT THE SAME DEFLECTION AND SMALLER VALUES OF MAXIMUM MOMENT, FOR CUSTOMARY PILE SPACING, PROVIDED THAT ADEQUATE REINFORCEMENT IS AVAILABLE TO MINIMIZE PILE BUTT ROTATION /FHWA/
