Document Type: Journal Paper


Laboratory test data on rigid piles embedded or driven at various angles in cohesionless soils and subjected to oblique pull, 60○ from the horizontal, are presented. The vertical or a slight out-batter pile position gives the greatest resistance, the ultimate loads for a 30○ out-batter being less than 65% of the peak resistance. The pile roughness becomes a significant factor when the relative axial load component reaches a certain limit. A method for analyzing nonlinear load-displacement relationship of a rigid pile is presented.
