[PDF] Sheet Piling Handbook Design
This edition follows in the footsteps of the well-known and universally acclaimed book Spund-wand-Handbuch Berechnungen by Klaus Lupnitz dating from 1977. The preface to that book contained the following words: “This edition of the Sheet Piling Handbook is intended to provide an outline of the fundamentals and analysis options for the design of sheet piling structures. The theory is mentioned only where this is essential for understanding.”A revision has now become necessary because the state of the art has moved on considerably over the past 30 years. Changes have been brought about by the latest recommendations of the Committee for Waterfront Structures (EAU 2004), the new edition of DIN 1054 with the latest modifications from 2005, and the recently published recommendations of the Committee for Excavations (EAB 2006). Common to all of these is the new safety philosophy based on the partial safety factors concept.
