    Abstract

    © 2015 Taylor and Francis Group, London. Current design standards for piles in sand are based on research conducted over 30 years ago with limited testing data and consideration of cyclic effects. With a global increase in the use of monopiles as foundations for offshore and near-shore structures to sustain long term cyclic environmental loads, there is now a need to improve understanding of the behaviour of piles under lateral cyclic loading. This paper addresses the shortage of test data by presenting results from a series of lateral cyclic loading tests conducted in medium dense sand in the centrifuge. These results are compared with data from recent publications to improve insights into the effects of cyclic load characteristics and soil density on the pile head displacement, pile bending moments, soil-pile stiffness and soil reaction (p − y curves).
