If a train track runs alongside a pile cap, what forces would be exerted on the pile/pile cap system?
What would be the direction of these forces?

Since track is very close to pile cap on piles,,
The effect s are bound to be on  Cap and piles .

Major force is in form of Lateral force due to Train Live load surcharge on pile cap and piles .

Also part of dispersed vertical load will act on pile portion thus causing eccentric load on cap.

Vibration effects in form of equivalent static loads be factored in both Lateral pressures and Vertical dispersed loads.
