Design Of Sheet Pile Walls

Design Of Sheet Pile Walls

This course is designed to provide engineers with a technical basis for the design and construction of sheet pile walls. It includes guidance for the safe design and economical construction of sheet pile retaining walls and floodwalls. It includes information on foundation exploration and testing procedures, analysis techniques, allowable criteria, design procedures, and construction consideration for the selection, design, and installation of sheet pile walls. The guidance is based on the present state of the technology for sheet pile-soil-structure interaction behavior. Commonly used methods of construction and installation of sheet piling are presented. Design guidance provided herein is intended to apply to wall/soil systems of traditional heights and configurations in an essentially static loading environment.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty (30) questions to earn 10 PDH credits.
