Abstract: In developed countries like Singapore, where the land is scarce, many tall buildings have been built very close to each other. Moreover, deep excavation is commonly done near the existing buildings such as construction of basement of new buildings and construction of underground MRT or tunneling. All of these constructions can cause damage to existing piles and this is because the lateral soil movements resulting from these construction activities can induce forces and moments in the piles. The resulting stresses can be significant particularly when soft soil deposits, for example peaty clay, are present and the lateral soil displacements are large. This project presents a method to analyze a single pile subjected to lateral soil movements on pile by using the spreadsheet platform of Microsoft Excel built-in constraint optimization, and the results will be verified by comparisons of reported case studies from the literature. The accuracies of this method are acceptable.
