Proc. 16th European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

In soft soil layers vertical piles are frequently loaded by horizontal soil movements caused by eccentric loading or unloading of the ground surface around the piles. In many cases, calculation methods do not consider possible influences on the resulting pile loads. In the scope of the paper, experimental and numerical studies are presented, which investigate the influence of parameters such as the size and the shape of the pile and the roughness of the pile-soil-interface on the lateral pressure acting on piles.
