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...

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...

This blog presents a case study with using PileLAT program for a pile lateral load test carried out in Salt Lake City in 2003. Figure 1 shows the testing layout and Figure 2 shows the testing arrangement as reported by Rollins et al. (2003).  

 Figure 1 Single...

The lateral load behaviour of a 16-piles group was studied by Ruesta and Townsend (1997) in Stuart, Florida. The pile group was composed of prestressed concrete piles in a 4 x 4 arrangement that were spaced at three pile diameters.

A wide range of p-y curves are available in PileLAT and PileGroup programs for modelling behaviour of soils and rocks under lateral loading. This blog presents and discusses API models for cohesive and cohesionless soils under lateral loading.
