Abstract: This project is the final year dissertation for the MSc course in Civil Engineering of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The objective of this dissertation is to investigate the pile foundation by finite element approach in which the interaction between cap-pile group and pile group-oil is taken into consideration. Mindlin's plate theory and single pile settlement-load relationship by Randolph [24] has been reviewed. Based on Randolph single pile approach, the pile head stiffness for pile group has been developed. Together with the isoparametric element formulation for plate element a new computer program FEAPF has been developed. FEAPF allows users to analysis with different kind of plate elements formulation and modification technique. Practical design approach for raft pile-cap foundation has been demonstrated.. Finally a raft cap foundation from the project located at Y.L.T.L 479 at Yuen Long, New Territories has been quoted for parametric study and comparison purpose. Suggestions for further development of the program FEAPF and investigation of the pile foundation behaviour has also been proposed at the end of this dissertation.
