In this paper a nonlinear fiber elements is used for modeling of pile soil intraction. In the model, both of steel pile and surronding soil nonlinear behavior is considered using fiber element. In this paper the model is developed using DRAIN-3DX software. The method used in this paper, however, allows pile and surronding soil inelastic behavior to be modeled accurately using a single elements. The model is used to simulate nonlinear behavior of pile -soil system and the results are compared with the other analytical and available experimental results. The lateral capacities of offshore piles can be calculated using methods presented in this paper. The analysis results using method presented in this paper in terms of pile head load deformation, pile lateral capacity and pile internal forces are in a good agreement with the other available analytical or experimental results. The model can be used for the pile soil structure interaction analysis of jacket type offshore structures.
