New theory of design for cellular cofferdams against failure by tilting, is substantiated by results of model tests; theory gives results consistent with those obtained in field in actual practice; previous theories and important inconsistencies; proposed theory used to investigate design of cofferdam on rock, and dock in sand; cellular docks in clay are discussed.
