Anchorages

If the structural and constructional requirements placed on a sheet pile wall call for an anchorage, then propping the walls against each other is one way of doing this, e.g. in trenches for installing buried services. However, in most cases the wall will have to be anchored back into the…

Anchor elements

Round steel tie rods represent the most economic way of anchoring a sheet pile wall. Normally, the forces are transferred to anchor plates. When using concrete anchor plates, it is necessary to excavate as deep as the underside of the concrete element so that the plate can be…

Design example for a round steel tie rod to EAU 2004

A quay wall with a single row of anchors is required. The structural calculations result in an anchor force A of 220 kN per m wall (EAU 2004 partial safety factor concept). A LARSSEN 605 section has been selected with an anchor spacing a = 3.60 m (corresponding to every third double pile). Round…

Grouted anchors

Horizontal round steel tie rods generally represent the most cost-effective anchorage solution. However, if different boundary conditions, e.g. structures nearby, unsuitable soils just below ground level or refurbishment work on existing structures, mean that horizontal anchors cannot…

Connecting elements

Anchor components For practical reasons, anchor rods should not be thinner than 1½ inch. It has proved worthwhile to form the threaded section by upsetting in order to prevent weakening this zone. The permissible stresses in the core of the threaded zone and thinner anchor shaft are therefore…

Waling joints

The connection between the anchor and the main wall can be positioned in the trough of the sheet pile, either at the front, on the sheet pile wall itself, or at the rear, on the waling (tension waling). The spacing of the anchors is then governed by the system width of the sheet pile…

Walings

Walings transfer the forces from the sheet pile wall to the anchors and also stiffen and align the wall. Generally, walings are provided in the form of tension members on the inside of the main wall, but on anchor walls they are generally provided in the form of compression members…

Sheet pile wall cappings

Permanent sheet pile wall structures are finished off at the top with a steel capping or reinforced concrete capping beam. They are designed to suit constructional and operational criteria. However, structural considerations also play a role if the capping is required to transfer…

Dockside equipment

Vertical ladders Vertical ladders are mainly required to provide access to mooring facilities and to serve as a means of escape in emergencies. They must continue as far as 1.00 m below the lowest (tidal) water level to be expected. To make the ladders easy to install and replace, the…
