Analysis of Soil Resistance on Laterally Loaded Offshore Piles in Inchon Marine Clay

The load distribution and deflection of offshore piles in Incheon grand bridge are investigated by experimental tests and a lateral load-transfer approach. The emphasis is on an improved wedge failure model developed by considering three-dimensional combination forces and a new hyperbolic p-y criterion. Through comparisons with field case studies, it is found that the method proposed in the present study is more appropriate and realistic for representing the pile-soil interaction for laterally loaded piles in clay than the existing p-y method.
