Chandrashekhara, K and Antony, Joseph S and Reddy, Mallikarjuna J (1996) An experimental investigation into pile group-layered soil interaction. In: Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design, The, 31 (5). pp. 371-375.Full text not available from this repository.
An interaction analysis of an axially loaded single pile and pile group with and without a pile cap in a layered soil medium has been investigated using the two-dimensional photoelastic method. A study of the pile or pile group behaviour has been made, varying the pile cap thickness as well as the embedded length of the pile in the hard stratum. The shear stress distribution along the pile-soil interface, non-dimensionalized settlement values of the single pile and the interaction factor for the pile group have been presented. Wherever possible, the results of the present analysis have been compared with available numerical solutions.
