The volume is divided into four main areas--quasi-static behaviour of piles and groups, drivability, pore pressure considerations, and dynamics. It provides a survey of numerical methods in offshore piling; effect of driving support conditions on pile wandering; directional stability of piles during driving; an advanced wave equation computer program which simulates dynamic pile plugging through a coupled mass-spring system; soil response during pile driving; soil-pile interaction under dynamic loads; mathematical modeling of piled foundations; dynamic stiffness of piles; theoretical studies of piles using the finite element method; application of a numerical procedure for laterally loaded structures; analysis of some case histories of laterally loaded pile groups; a linear elastic interpretation of model tests on piles in clay; analysis of offshore pile groups; axial analysis of piles using a hysteretic and degrading soil model; unified method for analysis of laterally loaded piles in clay; analysis of the load-deflexion behaviour of offshore piles; effect of radial variation in modulus on stresses after consolidation around a driven pile; the performance of open and close-ended piles.
