Non-Linear Behavior of Lateral-Loaded Pile Taking into Account the Shear Stress at the Sand
Due to recent research advances in understanding mechanisms that govern deep behavior foundations, vertical piles can now be used to correctly support lateral loads.
This paper concerns the development of a computer program for studying non-linear behavior of lateral-loaded piles taking into account the shear stress at the sand.
Some examples issued from the numerical code are compared with experimental results from centrifuge modeling loaded piles tests and with other numerical results from a well-known code used in France.
The influence of shear stress at the soil on the behavior laterally loaded piles was also studied.
