A MODEL OF SOIL-PILE INTERACTION OWING TO CYCLIC LOADING

A model of a pile-soil system subjected to vertical cyclic loading is proposed. The model is based on the classical t-z concept and on the compaction theory of granular materials to study the reduction of shearing resistance around a shaft owing to cyclic loading and the redistribution of loads carried by the shaft and tip of a pile. The model is applied to predict the behaviour of cyclically loaded piles in experimental conditions. Theoretical predictions against experimental data are presented. The model gives realistic predictions from a qualitative view point. Quantitative agreement is obtained for large-scale tests.
