Abstract: In this study the finite element model (FEM) analysis of group of piles in cohesionless soil with the diameter from 0.5m to 2m and spacing between the piles varied from 2D to 3D by means of the FB-multipier software. Hence by developing a finite element model soil structure interaction study is carried out considering nonlinear soil behavior in time domain analysis with the help of Newmark’s beta method.
Keywords: Laterally loaded piles, Dynamic analysis, p-y curves, Newmark’s beta method, FB-multipier.
