- Double-row stabilizing piles provide larger stabilizing force and lateral stiffness than the single ones. However, the loading shared by the front and rear pile is not the same with each other because of the shadow effects. A double-row long-short stabilizing pile system is verified in this paper. Physical model tests are used to investigate the influence of short rear pile on the earth pressures evolution in the stabilized soil. Numerical models are established and calibrated with the applied displacement–force curve and monitored earth pressure in the physical model test. The influence of the short rear stabilizing pile on the soil–pile interaction is further investigated based on the numerical model. The soil–pile relative displacement, total stabilizing force and bearing proportion of front and rear stabilizing pile are used to evaluate the soil–pile interaction. It is concluded that the total stabilizing force and bearing proportion of front and rear stabilizing pile are not significantly influence by the short rear stabilizing pile when the double-row piles are arranged in a line. When the double-row piles are arranged in a zigzag form, the total resistance provided by the double-row stabilizing piles decreases as the short rear piles are being used.
