In this paper, the pile-soil interaction behavior of a large-sized steel pipe pile in soft silty clay along the downstream of the Yangtze River is analyzed and discussed through an in-situ experiment under lateral static, cyclic and dynamic loadings, along with the static and dynamic triaxial tests on soil samples in laboratory. In the analysis, the finite element method and other simplified methods are compared using different models of lateral soil stiffness. From the results of the tests as well as the analysis, a possible formulation of the p-y curves of the pile in soft clay under lateral loadings is suggested, and a simplified method of dynamic analysis taking into account of the pile-soil interaction is also proposed.
