EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTICAL STUDIES OF BEHAVIOR OF SINGLE PILES IN SAND UNDER LATERAL AND AXIAL LOADING

A MODEL STUDY OF PILES IN SATURATED SAND SUBJECTED TO AXIAL AND LATERAL FORCES IS REPORTED. TWO-INCH DIAMETER BY 96 INCH LONG PILES WERE INSTRUMENTED TO MEASURE AXIAL AND BENDING MOMENT DISTRIBUTIONS. TWO GROUPS OF 4 PILES PLUS 12 INDIVIDUAL PILES WERE TESTED WITH THE SAND IN A FLOODED CONDITION. AXIAL AND LATERAL SOIL-PILE INTERACTION CURVES WERE GENERATED AND CORRELATED WITH SOIL PROPERTIES. RESPONSE PREDICTION CURVES COMPARE FAVORABLY TO TEST RESULTS OBTAINED BY OTHER RESEARCHERS AS REPORTED IN THE LITERATURE. /AUTHOR/
