SHEET PILE WALLS

generally used for retaining shallow heights of soil

wharfs, key walls

temporary structures for excavation (eg. dredging)


From McCarthy, 6th Edition

Cantilever Sheet Pile Walls

  • stability depends on passive resistance developed below the lower soil surface

  • failure is by rotation about a point O near bottom of wall

Danish Rules to prevent rotation

  • a factor of safety, FPis applied to the passive resistance in front of the wall

  • take moments about C to calculate d

  • then, increase d by 20% (empirical)

  • finally, check that the passive resistance provided by the extra 20% is > R, where R = SPH

  • Determine the depth of embedment, d by taking moments about A (SMA = 0, apply FP)

  • Find tension, T from SFH = 0 (don’t apply FP)

  • Constraints: failure wedges must not overlap
