Abstract : The deflections and stresses in a laterally loaded foundation pile are a consequence of complex interaction among the structure, the pile, and the supporting soil. Correlations are needed to enable reliable prediction of force-deformation characteristics (p-y curves) from the results of soil tests. Data were organized in chronological form and were carefully screened for information on which to base the needed correlations. Pertinent data from instrumented pile tests were evaluated for accuracy and validity. Attempts were made to apply reasonable corrections or estimates. Final evaluation of resulting p-y curves was limited by the need for soil-test data representative of the condition of the soil. Lateral-plate-bearing tests produce results which appear to be reasonably valid. (Author)
