The article gives a practical
implementation of the engineering method for calculation of different
retaining walls types. The main provision of the method is to provide
the construction calculation model as a combination of construction
elements with the respective conditions of their fixing. The
calculation model of shielded retaining wall (covered type of sheet
pile wharf) is proposed in the form of substandard rack-mount frame
where resilient ground attachment is accepted instead of rack lower
anchorage. This model uses stiffness characteristics of the ground in
the form of variable foundation modulus. The article considers the
definition of lateral earth pressure on the wall while staying in
sliding wedge of pile bent. The article gives an engineering solution
for definition of diagrams of lateral pressure on the front wall with
allowance for nonlinear influence of pile bent location, piles pitch
and cross section.
