The performance of sheet-pile I walls is evaluated using the SOILSTRUCT computer program, which is based on the finite element method. The analysis models the levee-pile system as a two-dimensional plane-strain problem. The analysis includes computations for a field test case and a parametric study of a proposed I-wall section. The principal finding was that traditional limit-equilibrium methods provide a reasonable conservative estimate of pile stability but one-dimensional beam analysis greatly underestimates movements caused by flood and wave loads. One-dimensional analyses do not account for the deep-seated movement caused by the surcharge load of floodwater. The finite element analysis showed that surcharge loading is the major cause of movement in soft clay foundations. It is recommended that conventional stability analyses should be used for design of the sheet pile-levee system; the foundation stability can be addressed by standard slope stability analysis and pile stability can be analyzed using the traditional limit-equilibrium method. The sheet pile should be designed to resist moments computed from the limit-equilibrium pressure diagram for a pile penetration corresponding to a factor of safety equal to 1.0. Charts are provided to estimate 'additional' movements caused by surcharge loading although it is recommended that new finite element analyses be performed when subsurface conditions deviate significantly from those assumed for the parametric study.

Volume 3 of this Handbook deals with foundations. It presents spread foundations starting with basic designs right up the necessary proofs. The section on pile foundations covers possible types of piles and their design, together with their load-bearing capacity, suitability, sample loads and testing. A further chapter explains the use, manufacture and calculation of caissons, illustrated by real-life examples. There is comprehensive coverage of the possibilities for stabilising excavations, together with the relevant area of application, while another section is devoted to the useful application of trench walls. Shore protection is treated in a special contribution covering sheet pile walls, while all types of slope protection and retainments are described in detail with excellent illustrations. Two further contributions are devoted to the special topics of machine foundations and foundations in subsidence regions. The entire book is an indispensable aid in the planning and execution of all types of foundations found in practice, whether for academics or practitioners.

Foundation Engineering is of prime importance to undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering as well as to practising engineers. For, there is no construction - be it buildings (government, commercial and residential), bridges, highways, or dams - that does not draw from the principles and application of this subject. Unlike many textbooks on Geotechnical Engineering that deal with both Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, this text gives an exclusive treatment and an indepth analysis of Foundation Engineering. What distinguishes the text is that it not merely equips the students with the necessary knowledge for the course and examination, but provides a solid foundation for further practice in their profession later. In addition, as the book is based on the Codes prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards, students of Indian universities will find it particularly useful. The author is specialized in both Soil Mechanics and Structural Engineering; he studied Soil Mechanics under the guidance of Prof. Terzaghi and Prof. Casagrande of Harvard University - the pioneers of the subject. Similarly, he studied Structural Engineering under Prof. A.L.L. Baker of Imperial College, London, the pioneer of Limit State Design. These specializations coupled with over 50 years of teaching experience of the author make this text authoritative and exhaustive. Intended as a text for undergraduate (Civil Engineering) and postgraduate (Geotechnical Engineering and Structural Engineering) students, the book would also be found highly useful to practising engineers and young academics teaching the course.

Anchors are primarily used in the construction of foundations of earth-supported and earth-retaining structures. The anchors are used in construction to transmit the outwardly-directed load to soil at a greater depth and/or farther from the structure. Although earth anchors have been used in practice for several hundred years, proper theoretical developments for purposes of modern engineering design have taken place only during the past twenty years or so. This book summarizes most of the theoretical and experimental works directed toward the ultimate and allowable holding capacity of earth anchors. The book contains six chapters with detailed discussions on horizontal, vertical and inclined anchor plates, helical anchors, and anchor piles. Discussions on the failure mechanism in soil located around the anchor, as well as various theories to calculate the ultimate and allowable loads, are presented. Laboratory and field test results which are required to supplement and verify the theories have also been included. This book is of interest to consulting engineers in geotechnical engineering, as well as geotechnical engineering researchers and engineering libraries.

This new edition of the handbook of Quay Walls provides the reader with essential knowledge for the planning, design, execution and maintenance of quay walls, as well as general information about historical developments and lessons learned from the observation of ports in various countries. Technical chapters are followed by a detailed calculation of a quay wall based on a semi-probabilistic design procedure, which applies the theory presented earlier. Since the publication of the Dutch edition in 2003 and the English version in 2005, considerable new experience has been obtained by the many practitioners using the book, prompting the update of this handbook. Moreover, the introduction of the Eurocodes in 2012 has prompted a complete revision of the Design chapter, which is now compliant with the Eurocodes. Furthermore, additional recommendations for using FEM-analysis in quay wall design have been included. In response to ongoing discussions within the industry about buckling criteria for steel pipe piles, a thorough research project was carried out on steel pipe piles fi lled with sand and on piles without sand. The results of this research programme have also been incorporated in this new version. Finally, the section on corrosion has been updated to refl ect the latest knowledge and attention has been given to the latest global developments in quay wall engineering. The new edition was made possible thanks to the contributions of numerous experts from the Netherlands and Belgium.
