This study describes field experiments conducted on two different pile groups subjected to harmonic loading. The results are compared to those obtained from theoretical analysis. The details of the study are described. The study found that the vibration of the pile groups displays moderate nonlinearity even for rather small amplitudes such as 0.001 of pile diameter. Also, the liner theory, combined with soil properties derived from shear wave velocity measurements, gives a reasonable estimate of single-pile and pile-group stiffnesses for small displacement amplitudes. These and other findings are discussed.
