Displacement interaction among energy piles bearing on stiff soil strata

This study presents an analysis of the displacement interaction among general configurations of energy piles bearing on stiff soil strata that are subjected to thermal loads. This work integrates recent analyses investigating the displacement interaction among predominantly floating energy piles subjected to thermal loads in deep uniform soil deposits. To address this challenge, design charts for energy piles resting on either infinitely or finitely rigid soil strata are presented, applied and validated for the analysis of the vertical displacement of predominantly end-bearing energy pile groups subjected to thermal loads using the interaction factor method.
