Specifications for Seawall and Bulkhead Design

It is very important to provide the most accurate and conservative data for engineers, architects and contractors.  We invested significant time and money to ensure the data was based on actual testing and independent analysis and interpretation by professional engineers and premier testing labs.  The following firms provided testing and engineering analysis:  

TESTING:  Testing was completed by Intertek Group (formerly Architectural Testing, Inc.), a well‐known and respected firm that tests products for the largest building product manufacturers.

ENGINEERING ANALYSIS:  Third‐party interpretation and analysis of the test data was completed by a well‐known and respected geotechnical and structural engineering and software firm, Ensoft, Inc.

Design of Sheet Pile Walls Using Truline Composite Wall Sections – Design Methods and Examples

by Ensoft, Inc (Austin, TX) - January 2015

This report presents the recommended structural capacities for Truline composite wall sections and a summary of design methods commonly used to design cantilevered and anchored sheet pile structures. Several design examples are provided to illustrate the application of these design methods for sheet pile walls using the Truline 800 Series composite wall sections.
