Hi. I am doing an experiment for my project in my university. I will briefly explain the situation.
There is a concrete box of (1*1*1) m in which i have cohesionless soil. The soil is compacted. Then i embedded a steel hollow pipe as a pile. Then i applied lateral load incrementally at the tip of the pile.
Now my problem is about the boundary conditions and loading conditions. Specially in the step, interaction,load module.
If someone can guide me in the process, i will be really grateful. Or if someone has any tutorial, sharing the tutorial would be nice too.
Thank you.

RE: Geotechnical

modelling of piles at small scale is discussed in many papers, do a literature review online.
