This study is presented to investigate the behavior of concrete pile in gypseous soil with 30%, and 66% gypsum content subjected to tension load, also including a comparison to illustrate the behavior of solid steel and concrete piles types (slenderness ratio (L/D) = 10) embedded in the same soil (66% gypsum content) for both dry and 24 hr soaked specimens. The results showed 82%, and 45% capacity decrease to soaked specimens for both 30%, and 66% gypsum content samples respectively. It is argued that this lack in capacity is due to the dissolution of the gypsum. The latter reason interprets the 66% lack in the pullout capacity for the steel pile embedded in 66% gypsum content. Increasing gypsum content enhanced capacity of concrete piles for both dry and soaked samples. The pullout capacity of steel pile illustrates general trend to be more than the corresponding values of concrete types to about 46% for dry and 5% for soaked samples. That behavior can be attributed to the friction or adhesion between pile and soil particles for steel is more than concrete types.
