  • Abstract

    The main objective of this study is to simulation and analysis of single pile and pile group for bridge pile foundation (case study). The project already exists at Baghuba City Center at AL-Mufrak Square named "Almujaser". Usually this huge structure has number of piles at its foundation part. Therefore this study deal with the FE simulation for the piles to estimate all expected problems that maybe occur at the foundation of this project. In addition this evaluation has included the layered soil system with three –dimension effect. It has been concluded that the pile with little change in resulted displacements are occurred due to different soil profile under each pile. The pile within group carries different capacity even if this difference is little. In addition the pile cap has improved in group capacity around 30%.
