# A p–y Model for Large Diameter Monopiles in Sands Subjected to Lateral Loading under Static and Long-Term Cyclic Conditions | Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering

Abstract

The design of large diameter monopiles subjected to cyclic lateral loading is of interest in many applications, such as, for example, in the offshore wind energy industry. Engineering design methods to estimate the deflection of these structures are required for this purpose. In the present work, a

$p–y$

model for large diameter monopiles subjected to lateral loading is proposed. The model considers a pile in cohesionless soil subjected to static and long-term cyclic loading. Its formulation features the consideration of nonlinear relations for the ultimate soil resistance
