The SOLCYP joint industry project is aimed at developing improved methodologies for designing piles submitted to axial or lateral cyclic loading. This paper outlines the objectives and technical content of the project and highlights how the experimental data gathered throughout the past four years can be used to develop advanced procedures for designing piles under axial cyclic loading. A companion paper addresses SOLCYP’s contribution to the design of piles under cyclic lateral loading.
