Are you referring to a concrete cap across the top of the steel sheet piles?

Yes, I'm referring to a concrete cap across the top of the steel sheet piles. Please do share your knowledge

Its a sheet pile on top of we need to design the capping beam along with the tie rod

RE: CAPPING BEAM

everything needs to be designed....not sure how to give a more accurate answer to such a vague question

RE: CAPPING BEAM

What I have done is as follows. A deep wide flange beam is laid on its side on the top of the sheet piles. It is connected to the sheet piles with steel plates at every pile. Rebars are welded to the web of this beam, extending vertically. Horizontal rebars are added, and the concrete is poured to the desired height. The sideways wide flange beam acts as a waler, with tie rods welded to it and extending to the anchor wall.
