Abstract: The displacements of flexible vertical and batter model piles under eccentric and inclined loads in layered soil of clay overlying sand is studied. Horizontal and vertical displacements are found to agree fairly well with theoretical estimates using an effective pile depth for elastic conditions. The proposed analysis is also compared with some field cases.
