According to the pile load test data presented in this study, the lateral bearing capacities of these test piles were calculated using the modified and existing m approach, as shown in Figure 9.
[13] proposed a new empirical formula for the p-y curves of ultralong PHC pipe piles in soft clay based on the analyses of the relationship between ultimate soil resistance and some geotechnical parameters from lateral pile load test.
The aim of this work is to (1) propose an LPDM based on the interpretation of pile load test results for a reference site, (2) describe some case histories located in the reference site and report the most relevant experimental evidence, and (3) apply the proposed LPDM to the selected case histories.
