Soldier pile example

Soldier Pile Wall Example with DeepEX (English Units)

A soldier pile wall example will be analyzed with DeepEX. The following data is available:

a) Soil properties: Sand, friction angle = 30 degrees, total unit weight 120 pcf, loading modulus of elasticity Eload= 300 ksf, reloading modulus of elasticity Eur = 900 ksf. Ultimate bond resistance for ground anchors 40 psi.

b) Excavation depth: 23 ft, cantilever stage 10ft, ground anchor at 8ft depth at 15 degrees. Soldier piles spaced at 8ft off center. Include 600 psf traffic surcharge 1ft behind the wall for a length of 20ft.

Objective: Design the soldier pile and the ground achors with allowable stress methodology and obtain a wall embedment safety factor of 1.5.

By double-clicking on the wall, we can define the wall section parameters through a user-friendly dialog. We simply have to select the wall type, choose the steel beam section we wish to use from the list and define pile spacing and lagging thichness and position.

Supports and loads can be added graphically on the model area, by using the Draw Loads and Draw Supports options in the General tab of DeepEX. After we draw the load or the support on the model, the Edit Options dialogs appear. There, we can define the load magnitude, the load position, the support position and structural section etc.

After the analysis is completed, the Analysis and Checking summary appears. There, we can review the maximum deflection, moment and shear values and the wall and support structural and geotechnical checks.
