Abstract

This paper presents the results of static lateral load test carried out on single aluminum model pile embedded in soft clay (consistency index Ic = 0.42) on sloping ground. A series of laboratory model test had been carried out on the instrumented aluminum model pile on sloping ground of varying slopes (1V:1H, 1V:3H and 1V:5H) and with varying embedment length to diameter ratio (L/D) of 20, 25 and 30. From the experimental studies, it was observed that when ground surface changes from horizontal to steep slope (1V:1H), the reduction in pile capacity for L/D ratios 20, 25 and 30 was nearly 50%, 46% and 36% respectively, where as for ground surface changes from horizontal to 1V:5H slope, the reduction in pile capacity was observed to be 1-2% for all L/D ratios (20, 25 and 30).
