Abstract

Seismic response of pile group is investigated in both theory and experiment. The dynamic experiments were conducted on a full-size pile group in linear vibration and nonlinear vibration respectively, and the impedances of group were determined using the boundary zone model with non-reflective interface. The theoretical and experimental results indicate that the response of pile group may be increased substantially with the nonlinearity of soil-pile system in a seismic event, and there is a pronounced increase in the horizontal seismic response of group with the pile-soil-pile interaction.

Seismic Response on Full-Size Pile Group

St. Louis, Missouri

Seismic response of pile group is investigated in both theory and experiment. The dynamic experiments were conducted on a full-size pile group in linear vibration and nonlinear vibration respectively, and the impedances of group were determined using the boundary zone model with non-reflective interface. The theoretical and experimental results indicate that the response of pile group may be increased substantially with the nonlinearity of soil-pile system in a seismic event, and there is a pronounced increase in the horizontal seismic response of group with the pile-soil-pile interaction.
