    Abstract

    The ground motion caused by earthquake loadings may cause the degradation in the stiffness and strength of the subsoil, and it may in turn degrade the lateral resistance of soil to pile deflection. In this paper, the dependence of the residual strength and the mobilized strength of offshore sands on the pore pressure induced by cyclic loadings with different densities are discussed. A procedure for evaluation of the degradation in strength and lateral resistance, which takes both the pore pressure and density into consideration, is suggested.
