This proceedings, Piles Under Dynamic Loads, consists of papers that try to identify the state of practice in the analysis and design of pile foundations under dynamic loads. Writers from around the world address the issues related to the complexity of the response of pile foundations to dynamic loads such as earthquakes. Such topics as soil-pile interaction and the effects of liquefaction are explored by using such testing methods as shake table and centrifuge models to study these issues.

Subject Headings: Dynamic loads | Pile foundations | Foundation design | Soil-pile interaction | Shake table tests | Centrifuge models | Dynamic structural analysis | Seismic loads
