The SOLCYP joint industry project aims to develop improved design methodologies for piles submitted to axial or lateral cyclic loading. This paper presents the results of several centrifuge model test programs carried out as part of SOLCYP on the response of single piles to lateral loads in sand and in clay. Based on these test data and results of other published studies, two methods are proposed to take into account the cyclic load effects in lateral pile design.
