An experimental investigation was made into the response of piles in sand subjected to lateral cyclic loading. Seven instrumented model piles tests were conducted. Five tests were conducted under typical magnitude and number of cyclic loading, and two were under static loading. The results were used to deduce modulus of subgrade reaction k and the profile of limiting lateral resistance force per unit length (LFP, pu profile) in light of closed-form solutions. The study demonstrates a large… Expand
Lateral cyclic response of an aluminum model pile in sand
ABSTRACT Lateral cyclic load tests were performed on an aluminum model pile in dry sand. Two levels of loading were adopted to represent different service load conditions. The maximum number ofExpand
