The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance for the safe design and economical construction of sheet pile retaining walls and floodwalls. This manual does not prohibit the use of other methods of analysis that maintain the same degree of safety and economy as structures designed by the methods outlined herein.
Design guidance provided herein is intended to apply to wall/soil systems of traditional heights and configurations in an essentially static loading environment. Where a system is likely to be required to withstand the effects of an earthquake as a part of its design function, the design should follow the processes and conform to the requirements of “A Manual for Seismic Design of Waterfront Retaining Structures” (U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (USAEWES) in preparation).
