Abstract

Seismic behavior of a structure is highly influenced by the response of the foundation and the ground. Hence, the modern seismic design codes stipulate the analysis of an overall structural system considering soil-structure interaction. In this paper, 3D FEM analysis was carried out to study the behavior of the pile and soil during earthquakes. Numerical simulations were carried out based on the two different experimental studies: a) Cyclic loading test of RC model piles embedded into sandy soil and b) lateral loading test on real-scale piles embedded into cohesive soil. The 3D FEM analysis used in the study could adequately simulate the behavior of the experimental specimens.
