1 EXCAVATION SUPPORT CONSTRUCTION IN URBAN ENVIRONENTS: CHALLENGES and SOLUTIONS Presented to: DELAWARE VALLE ASSOCIATION OF STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS Domenic D Argenzio, PE, Senior Associate ueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers New ork, New ork Lecture Overview: Factors that Determine Selection of Excavation Support Excavation Support Wall Types Wall Lateral Support Systems Waterproofing Inspection & onitoring Relative Costs Example Projects How is Excavation Support Defined? Temporary or permanent structure that will retain the lateral forces from soils and/or water in order to permit excavation for, and construction of underground permanent structures Excavation Support Wall Brace Load Soil Pressure Water Pressure When is Excavation Support Needed? Factors that Determine Wall Type Selection Excavation Support Wall Types Wedge geometry is defined by soil properties 45 Ø/2 45 Excavation Depth and Width Proximity to existing structures / roadways Service Life: temporary / permanent Excavation support is required when it is not practical to provide sloped sides that fit safely within the available work space Soil and Rock Conditions Groundwater Level Relative Costs 1

2 Flexible Wall Types Flexible Wall Types: Timber Sheeting Applications Flexible Wall Types: Soldier Pile & Lagging Applications Timber Sheeting Soldier Pile and Lagging Steel Sheet Piles Narrow Excavations Depth < 20 feet Above Water Table Installed with hand tools Excavations < 50 ft. Above Water Table Granular or cohesive soils with stand up time for lagging installation Flexible Wall Types: Soldier Pile & Lagging Applications Pile spacing 5 8 ft. max Timber lagging 2 4 thick Installed with vibratory or impact hammers Voids behind lagging packed with soil Flexible Wall Types: Soldier Pile & Lagging Limitations Pre drilling required through: an made obstructions Dense, gravelly soils Till; bouldery soil Problematic in running sands and soft clays Prone to loss of ground and settlements outside wall High risk use adjacent to sensitive structures not supported on piles or underpinned Flexible Wall Types: Steel Sheet Piles Applications Excavations < 55 ft. Excavations above or below water table Granular or cohesive soils Can be used for groundwater cutoff (interlock sealant) Installed with vibratory or impact hammers 2

3 Flexible Wall Types: Steel Sheet Piles Applications Flexible Wall Types: Steel Sheet Piles Limitations Rigid Wall Types Not appropriate if buried obstructions or cobbles / boulders are present Common sheet pile length = 65 ft. without splicing; limits their use Prone to settlement in loose granular soils, especially when vibratory hammers are used Secant Pile Walls Soil ix/jet Grout Walls Slurry Walls Combination Shapes Various Single Shapes High risk use adjacent to existing sensitive structures that are not pile supported or underpinned Rigid Wall Types: Secant Pile Walls Applications Rigid Walls Secant Pile Wall Rigid Walls Secant Pile Wall Excava on Depths 80 ft Above or below groundwater table; good groundwater cutoff Drilled overlapped holes reinforced with beams Individual 3 ±ftdiameter cased holes in primary/secondary pattern; soil completely replaced with concrete Less vibrations than driven systems Can eliminate the need for underpinning adjacent structures Can be incorporated into permanent structure Pre fabricated forms Guide wall 3

4 Rigid Walls Secant Pile Wall Rigid Walls Secant Pile Walls: Limitations Rigid Walls Slurry Walls: Practical Applications Obstructions, cobbles / boulders hinder installation Excavation depths: 50 ft. >100 ft. Temporary support and permanent foundation walls Difficult ground conditions and obstructions Wall continuity in deep applications can be a problem (verticality control is critical) Recommended adjacent to sensitive structures Eliminates need for underpinning Top down construction Typical construction sequence Excavation Support Systems Rigid Walls Slurry Walls: Practical Applications Rigid Walls Slurry Walls Rigid Walls Slurry Walls Sequenced trench excavation under slurry Provides temporary excavation support Slurry walls are most economical when the following uses are combined: Becomes the permanent foundation wall Carries permanent vertical load of the structure Provides permanent groundwater cutoff Trench panels: 8 ft 24 ft. Wall thickness: 2 4 ft. Can be post tensioned for high capacity Can be constructed in various shapes and used as load bearing elements Typical guide wall construction 4

6 Cantilevered Walls Lateral Wall Supports: Cross Lot Bracing Lateral Wall Supports: Rakers No external means of lateral support Embedment depth below subgrade is critical Performance is sensitive to soil properties H 1.5H ± No external easements required Obstructs excavation & construction Vertical supports generally required for widths >100 ft. Load capacity generally unlimited Excavation widths >100 ft. Temporary stable soil slopes Partial construction of foundation or temporary heel blocks Capacity limited by: Bearing capacity of heel blocks Uplift capacity of support wall Limited In Height 15 ft Lateral Supports: Tiebacks Unobstructed excavation Exterior easements required Special seals at wall penetration below water Special care below existing structures to prevent settlement Capacities: Clays < 85 tons Sands < 250 tons Rock < 500 tons Waterproofing Blind Side (embranes) Negative Side (Capillary) Admixture (Crystalline) Waterproofing: Blindside embrane on Sheet Piling Flexibility Conformability 6
