Supporting earth/backfill. Assumptions. Wall is smooth and vertical and earth pressure theories applicable to rigid retaining walls only. The pivot point should be at a depth xo from ground level and not at the sheet pile wall. All equilibrium equations are applicable to sheet pile wall. Sum over vertical moments is not required for design of sheet pile wall because weight of sheet pile wall is considered as negligible.

Cantilever sheet piling walls depend on the passive resisting capacity of the soil below the depth of excavation to prevent overturning. The depth of sheet piling walls below the bottom of the excavation is determined by using the difference between the passive and active pressures acting on the wall. The theoretical depth of pile penetration below the depth of excavation is obtained by equating horizontal forces and by taking moments about an assumed bottom of piling. The theoretical depth of penetration represents the point of rotation of the piling. Additional penetration is needed to obtain some fixity for the piling. Computed piling depths are generally increased 20% to 40% to obtain some fixity and to prevent lateral movement at the bottom of the piling. Sum of the Horizontal moments is, 1. , H is the horizontal force at tip of pile. Sum of the moments about point ‘O', 2. , & are the total earth pressure forces, and h is the height of the sheet pile above ground level.Read More
