Abstract

In the forthcoming years intensive renovation and reconstruction works can be expected on the banks’ freshwaters of Hungary. For the rehabilitation of the shores of Lake Velence works are starting in 2020. To support these investments there has been a demand for prefabricated reinforced concrete sheet pile walls. Realizing the opportunity, a major player in the market of pre-fabricated reinforced concrete elements for water way construction, CSOMIÉP Ltd. decided to develop a reinforced concrete sheet pile wall. In this study the development and complex structural and geotechnical design concept are shown through the major structural behaviors and useable geometries.
