Abstract

We carried out centrifuge tests to clarify the seismic behavior of batter-pile foundations. A vertical-pile foundation and a batter-pile foundation without the presence of a superstructure were installed parallel to each other in a soil container filled with dry sand, and were excited simultaneously. Through a comparison of the acceleration and displacement response of the footing, as well as the axial and bending strain of the piles for the two pile foundations, the kinematic response of the seismic behavior of the batter-pile foundation was experimentally investigated.

Seismic Behavior of Batter Pile Foundation: Kinematic Response

San Diego, California

We carried out centrifuge tests to clarify the seismic behavior of batter-pile foundations. A vertical-pile foundation and a batter-pile foundation without the presence of a superstructure were installed parallel to each other in a soil container filled with dry sand, and were excited simultaneously. Through a comparison of the acceleration and displacement response of the footing, as well as the axial and bending strain of the piles for the two pile foundations, the kinematic response of the seismic behavior of the batter-pile foundation was experimentally investigated.
