PILES SUBJECTED TO LATERAL SOIL MOVEMENTS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by L.T. Chen and H.G. Poulos, published in this journal (Volume 123, Number 9, September 1997), is presented. The discussers propose an alternative numerical procedure for the analysis of pile-soil interaction based on load-transfer functions and demonstrate that their method is capable of predicting lateral response of single piles similar to that given by the authors' method. The discussers also comment that a reduction of soil movement must be considered for a row of piles. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
