Pile foundations are common foundations for bridge abutment, piers and buildings resting on soft soil strata. Piles are structural members that are made of steel, concrete, or timber. They are used to build pile foundations. Despite the cost, the use of piles often is necessary to ensure structural safety. piles are used in construction work, depending on the type of load to be carried, the subsoil conditions, and the location of the water table The objective of the current study is to carry out parametric analysis of a group of piles by analyzing using finite element method & comparing the results obtained using empirical equations(Brom s method and Vesics method) . The piles are modelled as linear elements. The effect of soil structure interaction is taken into account by assuming it as vertical and horizontal soil spring (winkler soil spring) . Lateral subgrade modulus and vertical subgrade modulus of soil (KH and kv) is calculated as per is code 2911. The pile group is subjected to both vertical and horizontal forces.
