LATERAL LOAD TESTING OF MODEL PILES. PHASE 1

The objectives of phase 1 of this study were to: 1. develop a load test facility which can be used to perform static lateral load tests on model piles; 2. establish a prototype pile and a corresponding model pile; 3. design and implement the instrumentation for the model pile; 4. calibrate the model piles; 5. perform lateral load tests on the model pile; 6. reduce the load test data and establish stresses, deflections, moments, and p-y data from the measurements; and 7. compare measured response to predictions made with computer progam LPOGSTAN. All of the objectives were met, and phase 1 was considered successful.
