Abstract

The design and performance of the earth retention system for a 35 ft deep excavation in medium clay is described. The earth retention system consisted of soldier piles and lagging with tieback anchors. One level of tiebacks included helical anchors installed in loose to medium dense sand. Behavior of the helical anchors in contrast to conventional drilled-in anchors is discussed.
