Slope and excavation support

Берлински стени

Description

Soldier piles are construction systems, which consist of piles (vertical beams), combined with coating (most commonly wood). Soldier piles are constructed as follows:

  • Construction of piles at equal intervals (usually 1m);
  • Narrow excavation works and installation of coating;
  • If necessary – back filling and compaction of the soil behind the coating.

Advantages

  • Economically feasible. The soldier piles are one of the cheapest supporting solutions, compared to other construction systems;
  • Fast construction;
  • Flexibility when building – possible changes along the construction process;
  • The construction technology is not complex;
  • Possibility for combination with spry concrete;
  • Possibility for combination with anchors.

Disadvantages

  • Most commonly used as temporary constructions;
  • Can’t be used in highly saturated soils without preliminary draining of the construction site;
  • Low stiffness characteristics, compared to other support systems;
