    • Abstract:
      Sign structures in Wisconsin are typically supported by drilled shaft foundations or spread

      footing foundations. However, when the soil conditions are not suitable to be supported on

      drilled shafts or spread footings, a group of piles could support the foundation. Large sign

      structures are subject to large lateral wind loads, which result in large lateral forces and overturning

      moments. These lateral forces and overturning moments produce both uplift loads and downward

      loads on the pile foundation. However, published methods for designing driven pile groups only

      address groups subjected either to compression or uplift, not both simultaneously. This research

      project investigated the behavior of the group of piles under both compression and uplift loads.
