ANALYSIS OF PERFORMANCE OF PILE GROUPS ADJACENT TO DEEP EXCAVATION. DISCUSSION

This is a discussion of a paper of the above title by R.J. Finno, S.A. Lawrence, N.F. Allawh, and I.S. Harahap, published in Vol. 117, No. 6, (June 1991) issue of this Journal. The discusser raises the following questions regarding the calculations of moments and moment capacity for the step-taper piles: was an axial pile load considered when calculating the moment capacity? What axial load, if any, was applied to the pile during the finite element simulation? Were the elements used to model the piles capable of modeling combined beam-column behavior? The discussion is followed by a closure by one of the authors.
