    Abstract

    probabilistic assessment of the lateral response of a pile in a uniformly graded dune sand is presented using CPT and load test data from a site in Perth, Western Australia. The assessment, which employs a new CPT-based design method, provides designers with an appreciation of the level of uncertainty associated with serviceability limit state design for laterally loaded piles in sand. It is shown that the lateral load range likely to induce a pile head rotation gradient of 1% (=0.57°) is significantly lower than the range anticipated from the CPT variability. Predictions of lateral response using the CPT method are not very sensitive to randomly generated qc profiles with assigned mean and standard deviation values at each depth.
