Lateral loading on pile groups often controls the design of these foundation systems, but their behavior when subjected to lateral loading is extremely difficult to predict. To compensate for this, factors of safety are increased, thus increasing the overall cost of a project. The purpose of this research...

In certain regions of the world, designing deep foundations to withstand seismic loading is a reality. Seismic loading of structures and foundations reaches a critical state as a laterally applied force. The response of soils and foundations to repetitive lateral forces is highly complex, relegating...

This report is part of an ongoing investigation on the response of individual piles and pile groups to various types of lateral loadings. This research has been undertaken on behalf of the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and the Mountain-Plains Consortium (MPC). Phase 1 of the study, involved...
