The Flexibility Characteristics of Sheet Pile Walls

RECENT research1 has shown that flexibility is desirable for sheet pile wall sections. The flexural properties of steel, reinforced roncretct, and prestressed concrete sections arc studied, in order to determine the most flexiblc section for a given moment of resistance. General relationships between unit moment of resistance and the flexibility number of the piling are developed for the conditions of working stress, yield, and ultimate failure. P.W. Rowe
