Abstract:

Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 15

From foundation exploration and testing procedures to analysis techniques and allowable criteria, this comprehensive guide provides information on the selection, design, and installation of sheet pile walls based upon the current state of the technology for sheet pile–soil–structure interaction behavior.

Topics include: open channel hydraulic theory; system loads including surcharge and water loads; system stability and design for rotational stability; nonlinear soil springs; nonlinear anchor springs; corrosion; liquefaction potential during driving; and settlement.
