This thesis deals with the determination of modulus of subgrade reaction for sandy and clayey soils surrounding laterally loaded short piles. The initial value of modulus of subgrade reaction determined in the laboratory is based on Terzaghi's method. The differences in lateral displacement of laboratory models and their numerical equivalents are associated with inaccurately determined values of modulus of subgrade reaction. The rectification of k which guaranties the same value of horizontal displacement of top pile point in laboratory experiment and its numerical equivalent is performed in the scope of sensitivity theory.Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
