Steel Sheet Piling has a connection “interlock” at both ends of the section. These interlocks connect with one another to form a continuous wall of sheet piling.
Soil conditions may allow for the sections to be vibrated into the ground instead of being hammer driven.
Typically steel sheet piles are designed to create a rigid barrier for earth and water, while resisting the lateral pressures of those bending forces. The shape or geometry of a section lends to the structural strength.
In addition, the soil in which the section is driven has numerous mechanical properties that can affect the performance.
The wall of sheeting provides excellent resistance to bending forces and is used to provide structural strength to a foundation.
Cold rolling (or cold-formed) is a metal working process in which metal is formed by passing it through rollers at a temperature below its recrystallization temperature.
Cold rolling increases the yield strength and hardness of a metal by introducing defects into the metal’s crystal structure.
Since cold-formed steel is formed at room temperature, the material becomes harder and stronger.
Cold rolled steel sheet pile sections are lightweight, which makes them easier and more economical to mass-produce, transport and install.
