Performance of a Full-Scale Lateral Foundation with Fine and Coarse Gravel Backfills Subjected to Static, Cyclic, and Dynamic Lateral Loads

Published on

Abstract

Full-scale lateral load tests were performed on a pile cap with five backfill conditions: no backfill, densely compacted fine gravel, loosely compacted fine gravel, densely compacted coarse gravel, and loosely compacted coarse gravel. Static loads, applied by hydraulic load actuators, were followed by low-frequency, actuator-driven cyclic loads as well as higher frequency dynamic loads from an eccentric mass shaker.
