An investigation of the lateral load capacity of model concrete filled FRP tubular composite piles was carried out. Model composite piles which formed a basis for the development of a three dimensional finite element model (FEM) using the ABAQUS analysis package were tested in a sand filled chamber at James Cook University. The results from the laboratory model piles and the FEM analysis provide a clear indication of the superiority of the FRP composite pile over its traditional counterpart under lateral load conditions.
