This file provides layout information for strengthening of soils to withstand lateral forces on bridge pile foundations. Lateral lots could be produced by way of wave motion, wind, seismic occasions, send effect, or site visitors. Strengthening of soil surrounding the higher parts of piles and pile teams, for instance through compaction, substitute of local soil with granular fabric, or blending of cement with soil, might be less costly than riding extra piles and increasing pile caps as how you can raise the bridge foundation's skill to withstand lateral forces linked to those a lot. This record offers computational tools for assessing soil-strengthening suggestions utilizing finite-element research of unmarried piles and pile teams and a simplified procedure utilizing commercially to be had software program. The research method and layout guidance could be invaluable to designers answerable for bridge foundations prone to be uncovered to major lateral a lot.
