Pile groups subjected to abrupt collapse of retaining structure

Rajesh Prasad Shukla

Abstract

Excavations supported by retaining structures are very common in the construction of new structures in urban and hilly areas. This paper presents behaviour of model piles of various configurations, when exposed to soil movement induced by collapse of the retaining structure. The performance of pile groups varies significantly with the distance between the pile group and the retaining structure. A pile row parallel to the retaining structure experiences large displacement as compared to pile rows that are perpendicular to the structure.

Keywords
