Energy Piles present an efficient solution for long-term carbon emission reduction and sustainable construction. However, they have received partial acceptance by industry. The major concern is on the impact of cyclic thermal changes on the serviceability of energy pile foundations. In addition, the evidence of successful long-term operation of energy pile systems has been anecdotal, and there is no design tool available to support their safe usage. A hybrid load transfer model has been applied to investigate the load-settlement behavior of the single energy pile during thermal energy exchange processes. Back-analysis results in terms of the thermal and mechanical response of energy piles show good agreement with field test results from Lambeth College in London.
