Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Piles Under Dynamic Loads


The dynamic responses of small model pile groups to strong shaking obtained primarily from shake table tests are described and analyzed. As a basis for understanding pile group response, the strong shaking of single piles was also explored and analyzed. The applicability of important methods of analysis used in practice such as the SPASM8 program and the static interaction factors of Randolph and Poulos were investigated.
