Plastic Sheet Pile (Vinyl)
The Plastic sheet pile requires input of:
- Cross section name (default name is generated by program, it can be changed using "User def." check box)
- Section length l
- Cross section type - it is selected in the dialog window "Catalog of profiles" (button "Catalog")
The catalog of profiles contains a lot of classes of sheet piles and casings from different manufacturers (see below). If you use different types of products, please contact us (email@example.com), we will implement it into our catalog in the program.
Parameters input - plastic sheet pile
Plastic sheet piles are very soft for bending and their deformations are much higher then deformation of steel or concrete structures. Standard method for determination of modulus of subgrade reaction (Schmitt) cannot be used for plastic material. If the Schmitt method is selected, program automatically switch to method "Vinyl" . In this case modulus of subgrade reaction is calculated from Oedometric modulus of soil - kh = 2/3 Eoed.
Other methods remain the same as for other types of cross section.
The verification of the bearing capacity of plastic sheet pile can be carried out in the frame "Dimensioning".
