Static and cyclic model pile tests in sand
Dr. Ir. S. Kanai & Prof. Dr. Ir W.F. VanImpe

Model pile tests have been performed in a medium dense dry sand under static compression and one-way cyclic compression loading modes in a pressurized chamber. This paper mainly examines two main parameters affecting the pile behaviour under cyclic loading: pile surface roughness (rough and smooth) and pile installation method (displacement by jacking and buried). Soil strength parameters testing in the deposit by CPT en DMT is also briefly discussed.
