performance?

 When can we allow plastic hinges form in-ground?

 How can we refine the pile selection using Nonlinear Static

Conclusions
 Pile design with in-ground plastic hinges is an
economical option, especially for high PGA

 Using a non-ductile pile section preventing plastic


hinges in the ground, usually leads to the
uneconomical design
 Limiting criteria is typically shear demand in
landward pile / deck connections

 Using pushover analysis enables specifying


ductile sections for some piles and class 4 for
others
