Steel sheet piling has a long history of extended service in a variety of structures and environmental conditions. The determination of the life of a sheet pile structure is part of the design process, and regardless of the conditions can be selected to meet the requirements of the project. The durability of a steel sheet pile wall is not pre-determined by the site conditions, but rather a decision made by the engineer. The Steel Sheet Pile Corrosion Guide is intended to give a designer confidence in how to select a system that meets structural, economic and aesthetic requirements of a project. These tools allow the designer to choose from an enormous variety of combinations to enable the targeted design life to be achieved.
The Sheet Pile Corrosion Guide is available for members at no charge in the PDCA Store.
The Retaining Wall Cost Comparison Guide compares the cost and duration of construction for steel pile walls, tangent walls, and secant walls. The guide details analysis models and procedures, results of the analysis, and the compares the cost & installation time for each wall type. The study was performed at the request of PDCA and with the help of Hartman Engineering and Richard Goettle Geotechnical Engineering and Construction.
