SIMPLIFIED APPROACH FOR PILE AND FOUNDATION INTERACTION ANALYSIS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Sun and Pires, published in this journal (Volume 119, Number 9, September 1993), is presented. The discusser criticizes the theoretical development and results of a study of the lateral dynamic response of a single pile in a homogeneous half-space and a homogeneous stratum. Gazetas states that the pile is treated as a shear beam, which is an unrealistic assumption. He comments further on inappropriate modeling of lateral wave transmission, the use of the Vlasov model to represent the soil reactions against the oscillating pile, and the unusual effect of material damping ratio. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
