The traditional p-y curve (in LPILE) does not account for the pile/shaft EI variation Based on the Strain Wedge Model Analysis EI 0.1 EI

7
Pile/shaft-head condition, which is not considered in the traditional p-y curve (LPILE) has been proven experimentally and shown below by the SW model

8
A COMPARISON BETWEEN THE SW MODEL AND LPILE COMPUTER PROGRAM S-SHAFT (SW Model) p-y curve is based on the concept of triaxial test and effective stress analysis, and local site conditions. p-y curve is a function of pile properties such as pile head fixity, bending stiffness, pile head embeddment, and pile cross-section shape. LPILE Semi-empirical p-y curve based on one full scale field test (Mustang Island test for p-y curve in sand, Sabine River test for soft clay). p-y curve accounts for only the pile width (no pile properties). The p-y curve is unique in the same soil and for the same pile width. P-y curve (i.e. modulus of subgrade reaction, E s ) is the key factor in the analysis of laterally loaded piles

9
S-SHAFT (SW Model) p-y curve for liquefiable soils (completely and partially liquefied soils). P-y curve for large diameter short shaft P-y curve is affected by the nonlinear behavior of pile material (varying EI). Mobilized group interaction with no need for assuming any P-multiplier. LPILE No p-y curve in liquefied soil. It is just a reduction factor based on soil residual strength P-y curve for slender long piles Varying EI has no effect on the p-y curve. Empirical P-multiplier with pile group. A number of correction factors

SHORT SHAFTS IN LIQUEFIED SOIL

37
Current Available Procedures That Assess the Pile/Shaft Behavior in Liquefied Soils (Using the Traditional P-y Curve): 1.Construction of the p-y curve of soft clay based on the residual strength of liquefied sand presented by Seed and Harder (1990) 2.The use of random P mult < 1 to reduce the stiffness of the traditional p-y curve of sand 3.Reduce the unit weight of liquefied sand with the amount of R u (Earthquake effect in the free-field ) and then build the traditional p-y curve of sand based on the new value of the sand unit weight. (proposed by Brown based on Cooper River Test)
