Abstract:Axial loads in the soldier piles develop due to tieback prestressing and downdrag. The significance of the contribution from downdrag depends upon the available axial capacity of the piles and stiffness of the ground. Downdrag can be relieved during subsequent excavation by relative downward movement of the wall with respect to the ground, as may occur when the limiting axial capacity of the pile toe is reached. The settlements resulting from redistribution of axial load must be carefully considered with respect to wall performance.
