HAT SHEET PILES FOR EARTH RETAINING WALL AND CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTIVITY 

(STUs - Structural) - To be Confirmed / 2 PDUs for PEs and CEngs - Approved)

The Evening Talk has been postponed from 3 March 2020 to 14 April 2020

 

TECHNICAL INNOVATION OF EMBEDDED EARTH RETAINING WALL

Steel construction products have been widely applied as structural walls such as quay wall, river revetment, retaining wall, or cofferdam as both permanent and temporary structure.

In this presentation, the presenter will focus on the technical innovation of embedded earth retaining wall by using Hat-type steel sheet pile. Hat-type steel sheet pile can be combined with H-beam in order to increase the sectional performance and make it applicable under the condition of excavation depth around 15-20m. The construction period could be saved as compared with conventional methods, thus, it can help to improve the construction productivity in Singapore.

In addition, by taking advantage of the higher stiffness of Hat steel sheet pile technology, it is possible to select the cantilevered structure that contributes saving in the construction period and costs as well. Moreover, the field test on jacking press-in method for Hat and H-beam combined pile was conducted in order to realize low noise and vibration, and to make it applicable in the city area of Singapore.

 

HAT-TYPE STEEL SHEET PILE FOR IMPROVEMENT OF CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTIVITY

The speaker will present on the design and construction of retaining wall using Hat steel sheet pile. Construction productivity in Singapore can be enhanced by Hat steel sheet pile in terms of its higher structural reliability, superb drivability and economic efficiency.

In order to satisfy the requirement of ensuring structural safety in construction, the sectional performance of every sheet pile shall be evaluated properly with reference to design documents. Through this presentation, the full-scale field test of Hat type and U type steel sheet pile conducted in Singapore will be discussed.

With all these tests, a better performance of Hat steel sheet pile is clarified, including the evaluation of interlock integrity, National Annex (ERSS Design guide) under a typical soil condition in Singapore.

Besides, the repetitive piling test of Hat steel sheet pile by silent piler, superb drivability and robustness of Hat steel sheet pile is clarified as compared with the conventional method under the soil and application conditions in Singapore will be discussed as well.
