Experimental and analytical results are presented that were obtained from laboratory tests involving one-tenth scale pile models embedded in sand, that were conducted at 1 G for for the Iowa Department of Transportation. Scale model pile tests were conducted to experimenatlly investigate pile behavior for a vairety of geometric, loading, and soil density conditions. Soil resistance and displacement relationships for skin friction, end-bearing, and lateral behavior, obtained from measured pile strains, were mathematically represented by modified Ramberg-Osgood expressions whose characteristic parameters were established for finite element analyses. The details of the study are described, the results are presented, and the conclusions drawn from the results are discussed.
