Abstract

This paper conducts a shaking table test study on seismic response of low-cap pile groups and bridge structure in liquefiable ground. The soil profile in the test consisted of the horizontal saturated sand layer overlaid the silty clay layer. The base was excited by three different El Centro earthquake events. The preliminary liquefaction characteristics of ground firstly were analyzed. The bending moment of the pile was mainly introduce in the note. There’s no doubt that the shaking table test provided the necessary groundwork to study lateral response of bridge pile groups in liquefiable soil with surface non-liquefiable layer.
