Dynamic pile-soil-pile interaction is analyzed using dynamic interaction factors. For pile groups, complex stiffness matrices are formulated in closed form for excitation in all vibration modes and introduced into the analysis of an offshore tower. The effects of dynamic pile-soil-pile interaction on tower response to random wave forces are demonstrated. Temporal as well as spatial randomness of wave forces are considered.
