Abstract

Soil – pile interaction is generally in designing pile supported structures, is ignored and the

structure system is analyzed assuming the superstructure rests on a rigid base or using

motions obtained from a free-field site response analysis. However, pile foundations

embedded into the ground resist soil displacements emanating from dynamic loading, such

as an earthquake, and change the response of the surrounding soil. The kinematic soil –

pile interaction varies with differing properties of soil, pile, and input motion. In this study,

the effect of soil layering on kinematic interaction is investigated parametrically by using a

numerical model based on finite elements method.
