Solid pile wall
The soldier pile wall is a temporary or permanent retaining wall commonly
used for excavations in urban areas.
The method consists of :
Drilling regularly spaced boreholes in which metal beams are sunk
Installing cladding (wood, shotcrete, steel plates) between the beams as the excavation
The stability of the retaining wall is temporarily provided by struts or anchors except in shallow
excavations where the wall may be self-supporting.
