The environment prevalent in oceans necessitates the piles supporting offshore structures to be designed against lateral cyclic loading initiated by wave action. Such quasi-static load reversal induces deterioration in the strength and stiffness of the soil-pile system, introducing progressive reduction in the bearing capacity associated with increased settlement of the pile foundation. To understand the effect of lateral cyclic loading on axial response of piles, an extensive research project has been carried out which includes laboratory model tests with soft clay, sand and layered soil followed by theoretical analysis including formulation of a numerical model and development of a design methodology for offshore pile foundation. The entire research work has been sequentially described in this book.
