Item description for Single Piles and Pile Groups Under Lateral Loading by Lymon C Reese & William F. Van Impe...

The complexities of designing piles for lateral load are mainfold. Wind forces act against overhead signs and high rise buildings and loads from waves and currents are frequently critical to the design of offshore structures and bridges. Waterfront structures must support horizontal loads from the berthing of ships, retaining walls must withstand lateral earth pressures. Such structures are often founded on piles which may be steel pipes or reinforced concrete columns. In navigating the complexities of lateral-load design, the book presents procedures for designing the piles and pile groups; a problem that can only be solved by accounting for the soil resistance as related to the lateral deflection of the pile.

This book guides the designer into finding the critical loads, either causing a pile to be overloaded or causing too much lateral deflection. Complex equations are derived and explained, and computer programs are used to solve the equations. Simplified versions of the two required programs are presented on a CD-ROM, allowing the reader to check the solution of some of the many examples given in the book and to find answers to related problems. Applications of the method are presented for the design of piles for a building, an offshore structure, an overhead sign, etc.

Reviews - What do customers think about Single Piles and Pile Groups Under Lateral Loading?

Excellent Treatise on Laterally Loaded Piles  Sep 17, 2003
Professor Lymon Reese (Univ. Texas) and Professor Willaim Van Impe of Ghent University have co-authored an excellent comprehensive treatise on laterally-loaded piles. Compared with other expensive books in geotechnical engineering, this 463-page book is an excellent value at $49.50.

Chapter 1, Techniques for Design
Chapter 2, Derivation of Equations and Methods of Solution
Chapter 3, Models fo rResponse of Soil and Weak Rock
Chapter 4, Structural Characteristics of Piles
Chapter 5, Analysis of Groups of Piles Subjected to Inclined and Eccentric Loading
Chapter 6, Analysis of Sigle Piles and Groups of Piles Subjected to Active and Passive Loading
Chapter 7, Case Studies
Chapter 8, Testing of Full-Sized Piles
Chapter 9, Implementation of Factors of Safety
Chapter 10, Suggestiosn for Design
Appendix A to J
My soft-bound copy came with a CD-ROM in the back jacket that included a student version of L-Pile and GROUP software. The bibliography is 14 pages long, and it thoroughly covers all of the relevant geotechnical literature. The book is nicely bound with Smyth-sewn signatures on good quality paper. The text is black & white (no color) with many line drawings and charts, but few photographs.
This is a career-capping book for Dr. Lymon Reese who has taught geotechnical engineering at the University of Texas for nearly half a century. This is the best current reference for laterally-loaded piles, and is therefore highly recommended to consulting geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists.

I would appreciate it if you could send me the Table of Contents of this book before I decide to order.
