Pile foundations are generally preferred when heavy structural loads have ot be transferred through weak subsoil to firm starta. These foundations in some situation are subjected to significant amount of lateral loads besides vertical loads. Lateral forces may be due to the impact of ships during berthing and wave action in the case of off shore structures. Pile supported foundations of earth retaining and transmission tower structure will also subject to lateral loads. In practice, piles are used in group and are connected by a cap at the pile heads. The spacing between the piles, arrangement of piles and direction of load play an important role in the assessment of load deformation behaviour of pile groups under lateral loads. The analysis of lateral load carrying capacity of the pile is essential for the safe and economical design of pile foundations.
