In this study, dynamic centrifuge tests in dry sand were conducted in order to evaluate the effect of pile installation on the dynamic p-y curve. According to the result of the pile installation effect on the dynamic p-y backbone curves, the subgrade resistance of a jacked pile in 40 g was found to be greater than that of a jacked pile in 1 g and a preinstalled pile in 1 g. It was also found that differences of the subgrade resistance decrease with the depth of the pile. Applicability of dynamic p-y backbone curve for the bored pile proposed by preceded researcher was evaluated by comparing with the result of centrifuge tests. In addition, dynamic p-y backbone curve for jacking/driven pile was developed by modifying that for the bored pile.
