Abstract: Pile-supported wharves subjected to earthquake motions should be designed to accommodate inertial loads imposed at pile head from the superstructure as well as the kinematic loads imposed on piles from the lateral ground deformations. In this research, the interaction of inertial and kinematic demands is investigated using data from five centrifuge tests on pile-supported wharves in conjunction with equivalent static analysis and a nonlinear dynamic model. The analysis results were used to refine existing guidelines for design of pile-supported wharves subjected to liquefaction induced lateral spreading.
