In this paper, the results obtained from the tests conducted on a single model aluminium pile embedded in soft clay (Consistency index Ic=0.42) with sloping ground, and subjected to static lateral loads under free pile head conditions are presented and discussed. A series of laboratory model tests has been carried out on instrumented aluminium model pile of outer diameter of 25.46 mm and wall thickness of 1mm. The single model pile was embedded on sloping ground of 1V:1H, 1V:1.5H, 1V:2H, 1V:3H and 1V:5H with different embedment length to diameter ratios (L/D= 20, 25 and 30). To quantify the effect of slopes, the tests were also carried out on horizontal ground surface. From experimental results, the lateral load carrying capacity of pile, load-deflection response of pile at pile head, effect of slopes and embedment length on pile capacity and bending moment profile along the pile shaft was studied. The experimental results has been compared with those obtained from finite element analysis PLAXIS 3D and found to be good agreement.
