Abstract

Geotechnical centrifuge tests were conducted to examine monotonic behavior of low aspect ratio piles in soft clays. Monopiles with aspect ratio of two were tested in the 150g-ton centrifuge at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Initial pile test results include force-displacement for displacement controlled loading. This paper focuses on ultimate capacity of short aspect ratio monopiles after cyclic loading. Post-cyclic monotonic capacity is compared to virgin monotonic capacity for pure rotational loading over a range of eccentricities.
