Example text

The load deformation response of a pile group will be less stiff than the sum of the individual pile stiffnesses because of the interaction between piles (Cooke et al, 1980). Elastic methods are general ly used to quantify interaction between piles in a group. Procedures for estimating group response may be consi¬ dered in two categories: The behaviour of the soil surrounding a laterally loaded pile is normally described in terms of p-y curves, which relate the soil resistance, p, per unit pile length to the pile deflection, y, at various depths below the surface.
