Simple design of rigid drilled foundation piers loaded laterally and embedded in cohesive soil is given. Soil is taken as homogeneous Winkler medium, where no shear stress exists. The assumption of rigidity is valid, if deflected shape of pier could be approximated as a straight line. Lateral deflection and angular distortion are computed with values of horizontal modulus of subgrade reaction recommended. Design procedure described holds strictly for drilled piers in homogeneous soil only.
