Lateral ground displacement due to liquefaction causing damages to major infrastructures like buildings, bridges, pipe, shore line utilities etc. When the surface slope is mild, a common mode of failure is lateral spreading with surface displacements that can exceed several meters. Considering the widespread use of pile foundations, their safety in the occurrence of earthquake has a special importance. Studies after the earthquake have shown that both the force due to structure and the Kinematics interaction between the pile foundations and the soil play an important role in mechanical behavior of piles. Since the effect of the superstructure on the pile-soil interaction analysis is significant; the analysis should be done based on the interaction axis of pile-soil-structure. In this study, finite difference method (FDM) has been used to investigate the effect of the thickness of liquefied layer, slope of liquefied layers and the underground water level on behavior of pile foundations. Results indicate that with an increase in the slope of liquefied layers, the maximum bending moment raises but the slope of this graph for low underground water level (near the surface) is higher. This type of behavior also is observed in the shear force created in the pile foundation.
