Abstract

This paper presents the numerical studies on the lateral behavior of pile group foundations for different group configurations subjected to lateral load. In this study, used three pile group configurations (i.e. 2x1, 2x2 and 3x2 pile groups) with four values of pile spacing (i.e. 2D, 4D, 6D and 8D). Results of the influence of group configuration, pile spacing as well as load intensities is discussed in terms of response of load vs. lateral displacement, soil resistance and corresponding p-y relationship. It can be observed that, the group configurations is largely affected on the lateral pile displacement and ultimate soil resistance for same amount of lateral load.
