I am a structural enginner and hope to seek for some advice on geotachnical concern. In typical strutted cofferdam, dewatering inside the site is required and we need to control the amount of groundwater drawdown outside the site to avoid excessive ground settlement. Does anyone know whether a higher or lower existing ground water level will induce a more critical groundwater drawdown outside the cofferdam due to dewatering?
Thanks so much.
