Abstract

Backanalysis of deflection measurements for a diaphragm and a sheet pile wall in Holland has shown that the results are mostly sensitive to the profile of coefficients of subgrade reaction. A sensitivity study performed to compare the wall deflections calculated with the Menard and Terzaghi theory shows that the moduli according to Menard produces best agreement. The analyses were carried out using a one dimensional finite element programme. It is shown that displacement measurements obtained from easy to perform inclinometer surveys.
