Tables are given of values which can be used for analysing cantilever walls and tied walls. These are based on the recommendations of the Working Committee "Excavations" of the German Society for Earthworks and Ground Engineering. The calculations are based on Blum's method and, for the calculation of the resistance of earth to narrow areas of pressure, Weissenbach's recommendations are used. They include the determination of earth pressures, penetration depths, forces on a section, anchor forces and bending moments. The paper deals with sheet pile walls and close boarded vertical beam walls with one row of anchors free to rotate at their base. In addition sheet pile walls are dealt with having one row of anchors and full fixity at their base; also cantilever sheet pile walls and close boarded beam walls. The book is suitable for initial designs, work for tenders and comparison calculations and it saves the time-consuming analysis of different alternatives. (TRRL)
