Abstract: In recent years, a considerable amount of attention has been paid to the dynamic response behavior of pile foundations. However, mainly because of difficulties in conducting tests and/or measuring the response behavior under dynamic environments, very little information is available on observed dynamic response behavior of pile foundations. This makes it very difficult to conduct research based on the real world. This book contains studies concerned with observation of the real world dynamic response behavior of pile foundations. Papers address experimental methods, observation in model tests and in real earthquake events, and comparison of theoretical results with observed real-world behavior.
