BEHAVIOR OF LATERALLY-LOADED PILES IN COHESIVE SOIL

AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE, BY MEANS OF ALUMINUM MODEL TESTS, TO PREDICT THE BEHAVIOR OF A GROUP OF PILES LATERALLY LOADED FROM A SINGLE PILE. 4-PILE AND 9-PILE GROUPS WERE TESTED IN COHESIVE SOIL, EACH OF THEM BEING COMPARED WITH A SINGLE PILE. THE DEFLECTION AND THE ROTATION OF THE PILE CAR WERE MEASURED AFTER EACH LOAD INCREMENT, AND THE BEHAVIOR OF THE GROUPS UNDER TOP RESTRAINT WAS CORRELATED WITH THAT OF THE SINGLE PILE WITH FREE HEAD. TESTS WITH DIFFERENT PILE SPACING IN EACH GROUP YIELDED THE SPACING LIMIT FOR THE GROUP EFFECT. /RRL/AUTHOR/
