The "conventional method" and the "rigorous method" of pile design are discussed, the former solving the calculation of the pile's head reaction and displacement by merely the balance of three forces, and the latter considering the displacement. Generally, piles are considered sufficiently long. But considering a case where the piles are short and it is necessary to apply the former method by partially revising it, a description is given of how to handle short piles. Included in the discussion are: a method to deduce from the results of soil tests the lateral coefficient of ground reaction which is to be applied to the analysis of the stress and displacement of the pile with the aid of theory of beam on an elastic body; a design method for connecting the pile head with the footing; and a description of the lateral resistance of a pile foundation having a free length.
