Dear practical constructions, Civil engineers, Civil students or even just blog reader.
Here is below, I will explain briefly work method of Steel pipe sheet pile driving, based on my experienced in previous project. I know specially for Civil student that have no experience in construction will have a benefit by reading the work method below.
I will explain the work method by sketches, instead of by many words, as we know that one sketch can explain dozen of words. The key is how we can gain the information and knowing sequences of work of steel pipe sheet pile driving. as shown on the sketches, we also know that is needed pile guide as temporary works, etc. Please see in figures below the work method sketches.
Note: (Step A is bottom part, Step B is the top part by on site splicing), bear in mind that is needed one pile as a master pile; means bottom part and top part should be finished before next pile to be continued, as shown on figure Step-A1 and Step-A2.
You also should know that there are three common types joints of steel pipe piles (L-T type, P-P type and P-T type) as shown on figure below:
