Abstract: Pile foundations are largely subjected to not only axial loads but also lateral loads especially during earthquakes, landslides or slope failures and also due to wind, waves and lateral earth pressure. Thus it has been understood that lateral capacity and lateral deflection also plays an important role during the design of the pile foundation. There are several analytical and experimental methods available for the analysis of the lateral pile behavior. But when it comes to complex pile problems their reliability is questionable. This paper studies one such complex problem which cannot be simulated for experimental work and hence it is analyzed analytically and the results are validated using three dimensional finite element method using the Plaxis 3D software. The results from both the analysis are compared and a satisfactory conclusion is reached.
