Design and construction of retaining shore walls of straight sheet piles. The construction of retaining walls using straight sheet piles is a necessary measure aimed at protecting the coastal line from various problems associated with erosion, subsidence, coastal landslide, erosion of slopes etc.
There are several types of straight sheet piles: PVC, composite materials, metal, concrete and wood. Depending on the chosen type of straight sheet piles, the method of immersion is chosen:
- percussion (hammering in piles) is considered to be the most versatile;
- vibration (using a vibratory pile driver) is the most suitable for sandy and dry soil;
- indentation (selected for clay and liquid soils);
- vibration pressing (combined method, used on soft and plastic soils).
For example, one of the most popular types of straight sheet piles today is a PVC straight sheet pile, which is resistant to any temperature conditions (it is able to withstand temperatures down to -50 °C and over + 80 °C) and is environmentally safe, durable and long lasting (about 50 years).
Design of coast establishing structures
The first stage is the study of the territory (coast) in which the work will be carried out, as well as the implementation of calculations: the height of the retaining wall, the type and volume of materials and the deadline for implementation of work.
After obtaining the calculated data, architectural and planning decisions are made, engineering and technical studies and a number of environmental/fire safety measures are carried out and a construction plan is developed.
In addition, experts find visual solutions for the decoration of the coast: Due to the simple installation and convenient system of connection, the straight sheet pile allows selecting almost any shape.
HydroBud Ukraine LLC performs the design and construction of bank walls using straight sheet piles, taking into account the desires of the customer, as well as the features of the facility.
