The piled gravity in this study consists of a cone-shaped concrete base and five piles. The three-dimensional finite element analyses were carried out to simulate four cases; single pile, piled gravity base foundation, five group piles with the same arrangement of piled gravity base foundation, nine group piles with three by three arrangement. From the result, the lateral response of each pile was evaluated in terms of soil reaction force and deflection. The lateral response of the piles of the cases was compared and analyzed. Finally, the group effect of the cases on the lateral response of piles was evaluated.
