Contiguous Piled Wall With Ground Anchor Support Design Spreadsheet
Contiguous Piles, structures made of piles, and pile-like structures are useful structural elements to support deep excavations and cuts in slopes, and to retain creeping or sliding slopes, not uncommonly in seismic areas.
Depending on the static system and the dimensions the structural elements transfer forcesmainly by shear (“dowel”) and/or mainly by bending (“beam”) to the ground.
In numerous cases they are particularly effective in combination with otherstructural measures like (pre-stressed)
anchors and/or drainage systems. The paper presents case histories including piles and pile-like structures, which are applied for retaining structures in slopes.
The main focus is on infrastructureprojects in creeping slopes. Two case historiesfrom Austria and Sloveniaare presented in detail. Miscellaneous projects from European countries concentrating on various aspects complement
