Behaviour of piles subjected to post construction subsoil movement and effect of soil creep – A case study

Rajibul Karim

Abstract

This paper models the effect of soil creep on the behaviour of two embedded piles subjected to post construction sub soil movements. Two trial piles were installed at the berm section of an embankment constructed on soft soils 150 km north of Sydney. The behaviour of these piles subjected to subsoil movement due to embankment construction is modelled and the effect of soil creep on the behaviour is investigated.
