A series of solutions is presented for group settlement, lateral deflection and rotation ratios, for a variety of pile-group configurations, spacings, and stiffnesses and for both a homogeneous soil and a soil when modulus increases linearly with depth. These solutions have been obtained from an elastic analysis and may be applied to the appropriate single-pile deflections to obtain the group response. Some typical solutions are presented to indicate the effects of pile-head condition and pile batter on the group factors, and then an illustrative example is given to demonstrate the use of the solutions for a practical problem.
