Eugene Washington, PE

The purpose of the course is to show the reader how to design and build practical excavation shoring. The design examples show the safe and proven calculation techniques for shoring design that can be applied to most excavation shoring situations. The course explains why proper shoring construction procedures are important to creating a successful shoring system. Sheet pile and soldier pile shoring systems are designed including the walers, struts, and lagging. Cantilever, braced and box configurations are designed and compared. The load factors are developed for partial shoring in steep temporary construction banks. Finally, the proper installation procedures are explained. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
