Older ARBED combined wall sections

Older ARBED combined wall sections

Older ARBED combined wall sections

I've been given plans for an extensive bulkhead system designed in early 1998. The designers specified the HZ sheetpile-H Pile combined wall system, including an intermediary sheet pile connecting sheet pile to H Pile. As it turns out, in 2001, the connection system has been radically changed by the ARBED company and the intermediary sheet pile section has been replaced by an interlock welded onto the H Pile. That is: the older system consisted of a sheet pile section with interlocks for connecting two sheet piles together, an H Pile section with connectors attached to the toe of the appropriate flanges (for connecting to an adjacent H Pile), and an intermediary sheet pile that connected to an adjacent sheet pile via a standard interlock on one side and to the H Pile connector, on the other side, where what would normally be an interlock baal or scoket being replaced by a smooth, boot-shapped end.

I have found extensive information on the HZ combined wall system circa 2001, but nothing concerning the older system. Design integrity will not be compromised by switching the sections (though CAD drawings are/will be tough to change...), but I would like to see as much literature on the older system as possible.

Thanks in advance!

White Paper – Choosing the Right Spring Loaded Connector
In today’s cost-sensitive world, designers are often driven to specify the lowest cost solution for every aspect of their designs to ensure that their solution is competitively priced and their company remains profitable. However, specifying a low-cost, low-quality connector solution can result in premature failure, considerable re-work costs and damage to reputations. Download Now
