Abstract

The results of the 3D finite element analysis on the behavior of single pile under lateral loadings are presented in this paper. The effect of pile shape for both circular and square cross-section on pile response was investigated. In addition, an effect of slenderness ratio L/B is also be carried out in this analysis. Linear elastic model of pile was used for modelling the piles. Mohr-Coulomb model was used to simulate the surrounded soil. The pile - soil interaction composed of 16-node interface elements. A good correlation between the experiments and the analysis was observed in validation example. It was found that the pile response is affected by the amount of loading the pile cross - sectional shape and pile slenderness ratio. The lateral resisting of pile increase in proportioned to the square shape of the pile. In both pile shape, a short pile (L/B = 8.3) gave a small amount of lateral tip deflection than the long piles with a slenderness ratio more than 8.3 for the same amount of loading. Also, the negative base deflection is high for short pile and reduces to zero for long piles.
