    A device is described whereby sand can be confined in a depthwise variable manner to permit simulation of lateral earth pressures to depths simulating driving depths of piles. Instrumented model piles were driven into a quartz sand placed at two different densities in the device, and load transfer patterns were measured for varying depths of penetration for compressive and uplift loading. In most respects the load transfer patterns were similar to those measured in full-scale tests in sand.
