Numerical and Experimental Investigation of Efficient Geometric Arrangement of Metal Fin Tube Foundations for Transportation Applications

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.
