Laboratory Tests on Scaled Steel Fin Pile Foundations

The objective of this study is to understand the efficiency of different geometric arrangements of fins in relation to the tube/pile for the performance of metal fin tube foundations (MFTFs) under axial and lateral loading. This objective will be achieved through an integrated numerical and experimental study.
