PREDICTION OF THE LIFE OF STEEL SHEET-PILE WALLS FOR RIVER PORTS

In the construction of quay walls for river ports sheet piles of Larsen types IV and V of Bessemer rimmed steel St3 were used. Investigations conducted made it possible to estimate the degree of corrosion of steel sheet piles and to predict their life on the basis of the conditions of corrosion and fatigue of the metal. A value of the rate of uniform corrosion (0.038 mm/yr) was obtained from the functional relation presented. The tests were carried out on an MUP-50 universal pulsator under mild loading conditions according to an asymmetric cycle with a positive value of the coefficient of asymmetry, equal to 0.25.
