Title:
Numerical study of group effects for pile groups in sands 
Abstract:
The OpenSees finite element framework was used to simulate the response of 3 x 3 and 4 x 3 pile groups founded in loose and medium dense sands. Several numerical static pushover tests were conducted to investigate the interaction effects for pile groups. The results were then compared with those from centrifuge study. It is shown that our simulations can predict the behaviour of pile groups with good accuracy. Special attention was given to the three dimensional distribution of bending moment. I...    »
