Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to review the design, installation and performance of steel tubular piles and steel sheet piles in the Port of Aktan, Kazakhstan. Due to steady increase in the level of Caspian Sea since 1977, the level of the exisitng quay was increased. The workd consisted of rehabilitation of quay frontage including general raising of the port working areas by about 2 meters. The subsoil consiste of 5m medium dense to dense fine sand underlain by 6m thick very stiff silty clay. Fractured limestone were encountered at a depth of 14m. A total 592 vertical and raked piles of 660mm diameter and 106 piles of 865 mm diameter were installed under the new quay. Two compression and one tension load tests were carried out on 660mm piles to verify the design criteria and installation procedure. At a distance of 3.5m from the exisitng quay wall a new sheet wall was formed by driving Larssen type sheet piles.
