Determination of nonlinear force-deformation characteristics of soil may be done by repeated application of elastic theory; soil modulus constants are adjusted for each successive trial until satisfactory compatibility is obtained in structure-pile-soil system; equations and methods of computations are given for elastic- and rigid-pile theory; design recommendations.
