Abstract

This paper presents a numerically efficient procedure for evaluating seismic responses of an axially loaded pile group. This procedure was used to clarify the impact on pile-group responses of employing different levels of soil-pile compatibility conditions. This study clearly demonstrated that the limitations and shortcomings of adapting relaxed soil-pile compatibility conditions are not negligible for pile groups with relatively small spacing ratios and with soil stiffnesses constant or decreasing with depth.

Seismic Response of Axially Loaded Pile Group

St. Louis, Missouri

This paper presents a numerically efficient procedure for evaluating seismic responses of an axially loaded pile group. This procedure was used to clarify the impact on pile-group responses of employing different levels of soil-pile compatibility conditions. This study clearly demonstrated that the limitations and shortcomings of adapting relaxed soil-pile compatibility conditions are not negligible for pile groups with relatively small spacing ratios and with soil stiffnesses constant or decreasing with depth.
