Abstract

Reduced scale model tests in centrifuge have been carried out for measurement of the ultimate horizontal load of a pile driven in dense sand. The construction of the load-transfer P-Y curves has allowed to analyse the response of the soil to the large displacements of the pile. The comparison between experimental results and those predicted by the current methods has shown the insufficiency of the theoretical approaches.

Experimental Analysis of Large Lateral Displacement of Piles in Centrifuge

St. Louis, Missouri

Reduced scale model tests in centrifuge have been carried out for measurement of the ultimate horizontal load of a pile driven in dense sand. The construction of the load-transfer P-Y curves has allowed to analyse the response of the soil to the large displacements of the pile. The comparison between experimental results and those predicted by the current methods has shown the insufficiency of the theoretical approaches.
