Lecture Title:
Design issues for laterally loaded piles in soft rock

Lymon Reese made many pivotal contributions regarding lateral pile response in materials ranging across soft and stiff clays, sands and (in 1997) soft rock. Many of these, including his recommendations for soft rock, are still benchmark design approaches. The lecture will explore different design approaches for laterally loaded piles in soft rock, drawing on recent project work for piles grouted or driven into weak limestone. In addition to formulations for lateral load transfer curves, the issue of damage will be considered, both in respect of how different construction methods may affect the lateral soil response, and more importantly the potential for distortion of the pile during driving.
