**Sheet-pile Wall-01: Free-Earth for cantilevered walls in granular soils. (Revision: February 18, 2009) Select an appropriate steel sheet-pile section and its total length L to retain a medium sand backfill for the conditions shown below without an anchoring system. Solution: Step 1. Determine the pressures on the cantilevered wall. 580

Step 2. Determine the depth of embedment D . The procedure will follow the following steps: a) From statics, find the dimension z shown in the figure of previous page, b) Assume a value for D , c) Calculate z , d) Use z to check if Σ M = 0; adjust D for convergence. ( ) () ( ) () ( ) () Step 3. Determine the maximum moment Mmax (point of zero shear). 11 2 1 2 2 2 22 10 0 0 2 2 20 2 6 Σ= ++ = ⎛⎞ −+ = ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ −− = + H AAA E J E A EA EJ AA E J E F a BAA Area AA A F Area ECJ Area EA A Dz D H p p p pp lving for z, ppDH p M about any point, say F , HD z Hp D p p p p Are 1 So z 1 0 66 +− = A DD p 1 23 ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )( ) 1 2 10 5 435 620 14 860 3860 3 860 435 10 5 14 435 160 14 860 3 860 10 5 10 5 1 14 435 10 5 4 67 435 620 435 105 3 860 14 860 3 860 620 730 = = = = = == + =+ + + = 6 A A J E F D . feet, s f , s f , p, p s f p,p s f ,. herefore, z . feet ,, ..
