Economical and safe design approaches for steel sheet piling structures in highly seismic zones
Widely used for the construction of a variety of structures such as quay walls and breakwaters in harbours, bank reinforcements on rivers and canals, underpasses, as well as global hazard protection schemes, sheet piles have proven their performance in seismic areas in many countries around the globe.Chile, the country that has suffered the strongest earthquakes in recorded history, provides an excellent example: Whereas its concrete-based ports have been severely damaged, the Port of Mejillones, constructed in 2003 using an HZ®/AZ® combined wall for the quay wall and AS 500 straight web sheet piles for the breakwater, has not suffered any damage throughout many heavy earthquakes with magnitudes of up to 7.7. This is the perfect example of the effectiveness of flexible sheet pile structures under extreme seismic conditions.Nevertheless, a certain reluctance to use sheet piles in seismic areas remains common among some designers. This concern may come from their experience of conventional design methods which do not favour flexible walls in seismic areas. These design methods are usually comprised of pseudo-static calculations using the Mononobe-Okabe theory (1931).Numerical studies and physical experiments (centrifuge testing) have shown that these conventional methods of design are overestimating the loads on retaining walls - especially in the case of flexible walls. Although EN 1998-5 allows for a reduction of the seismic action depending on the acceptable displacements (reduction factor “r”), this only applies to gravity walls and not to anchored walls such as sheet pile walls, despite their inherent ductility.Today, powerful design tools using Finite Element Modelling (FEM) allow for dynamic calculations that can accurately predict the behaviour of the retaining walls undergoing different seismic loadings, including internal forces, deformations, increases in pore water pressures, and expected modes of failure.
