Abstracts: Battered pile foundations are usually used to improve the deformation characteristics of pile foundations subjected to lateral loads. The purpose of this research is to develop a simple and acceptable method for users to calculate the impact factors of a battered pile group under statically lateral loads. For this purpose, the governing differential equations have been derived using a one-dimensional continuous model. In this modeling, Winkler's method has been used in which the soil reaction against pile deformation is modeled by springs along the pile length. The closed form solutions of the governing equations have been obtained using appropriate boundary conditions. The results are compared with other methods and the parametric study of interaction factor is performed.
