Settlement prediction of single piles under axial loading is as important as the estimation of ultimate axial capacity which is the sum of ultimate total shaft resistance and end bearing resistance. Settlement control usually receives the most intention for geotechnica...

It is common to analyze laterally loaded piles by treating the problem as a beam on an elastic foundation. In general, the finite element method (FEM) is used to solve the governing differential equation, in preference to the more popular finite difference approaches....

Laterally loaded piles under axial loading with considering P-Delta effect. The lateral displacement of pile foundation often shall be checked in the routine foundation design and the geotechnical engineers need to ensure that the relevant displacement compliance crite...

Kraft et al. (1981) details the results of axial loading tests on single piles and pile groups driven into a stiff over-consolidated clay at a site located on the University of Houston Campus. The piles were closed end tubular steel pipes with Young’s modulus of 210GPa...
