in this study to investigate the lateral pile response for single vertical
pile embedded in cohesionless soil. Four water table cases we simulated,
i.e., dry soil condition, water table in the base and middle of the pile
length and fully saturated soil. Linear elastic model of pile is used
for modeling the pile material while Mohr-Coulomb model is used to simulate
the surrounding soil. The pile-soil interaction are composed of 16-node
interface elements. It was found that the water table elevation influence
on the behavior of laterally loaded pile. As expected the case of dry
soil condition gives more resistance than other three soil cases.]]>Johnson, K., P. Lemcke, W. Karunasena and N. Sivakugan,2006Ismael, N.F.,1998Karthigeyan, S., V.V.G.S.T. Ramakrishna and K.
