Abstract:
The behaviour of ‘non-displacement’ piles installed in dense Fontainebleau sand and subject to both static and cyclic vertical loads is investigated in a geotechnical centrifuge at a scale of 1:23. Different loading se-quences with several combinations (one- and two-way) have been applied. The influences of the cyclic load amplitude and mean amplitude are analysed.
