US Steel Sheet Pile Design - Cantilever Wall Excel Sheet

US Steel Sheet Pile Design - Cantilever Wall Excel Sheet 


Computes the depth required, maximum moment, and section modulus required for Sheet Pile Design based on US Steel's Sheet Piling Design Manual. There is a sheet to analyze the effects of Cooper E80 loading per AREMA Specifications. However,  normal traffic or equipment surcharge loads can be used as well. Graphs are provided for Log Spiral Active and Passive coefficients.

Analysis and Design of Steel Beams According to BS

Analysis and Design of Steel Beams According to BS


This spreadsheet performs an analysis and design of simply supported and cantilever, steel beams bending about their X-X axis and subjected to gravity loads. Beams can be either with full restraint or without full restraint.
Design is in accordance with BS 5950-1:1990. Bending moments, shear forces and deflections are computed at 1/60th positions along the span and the maximums of these values are used for the design. The equations for the analysis have been obtained from the Reinforced Concrete Designer's Handbook by Reynolds and Steedman. Self weight of the steel section is automatically included in the calculations. The moment capacity of the section is calculated taking into account the corresponding shear force and a reduction is made as necessary. A check is made to see if a shear bucking calculation is required and a warning is issued. This spreadsheet also contains a calculation sheet for checking local web bearing and buckling.

Water Engineering: Hydraulics, Distribution and Treatment

Water Engineering: Hydraulics, Distribution and Treatment

Lawrence K. Wang

Preference :

Each section of this chapter offers, in a sense, a preview of matters discussed at length in later parts of this book. There they are dealt with as isolated topics to be mastered in detail. Here they appear in sequence as parts of the whole so that their general purpose and significance in the scheme of things may be understood and may give a reason for closer study. Municipal water systems generally comprise (a) collection works, (b) purification works, (c) transmission works, and (d) distribution works. The relative functions and positions of these components in a surface water supply are sketched in Fig. 1.1. The collection works either tap a source continuously adequate in volume for present and reasonable future demands or convert an intermittently insufficient source into a continuously adequate supply. To ensure adequacy, seasonal and, in large developments, even annual surpluses must be stored for use in times of insufficiency. When the quality of the water collected is not satisfactory, purification works are introduced to render it suitable for the purposes it must serve: contaminated water is disinfected; aesthetically displeasing water made attractive and palatable; water containing iron or manganese deferred or demagnetized; corrosive water deactivated, and hard water softened. Transmission works convey the collected and purified supply to the community, where distribution works dispense it to consumers in wanted volume at an adequate pressure. Ordinarily, the water delivered is metered so that an equitable charge can be made for its use and, often, also for its disposal after use.

Traffic Engineering Handbook, 7th Edition

Traffic Engineering Handbook, 7th Edition

ITE., Pande,

Preference :

Traffic engineering is the subdiscipline of transportation engineering that addresses the planning, design, and operation of streets and highways, their networks, adjacent lands, and interaction with other modes of transportation (air, water, and rail) and their terminals. Over many decades, the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) has provided traffic engineering professionals with a comprehensive resource of fundamental traffic engineering concepts, as well as state-of-the-art practices, through the Traffic Engineering Handbook (TEH or Handbook). The Handbook's prior editions have been widely used by public agencies, consultants, and educational institutions as a basic day-to-day reference source on the proven techniques of the practice. The primary audience for this publication is practicing professionals responsible for the safe and efficient operation of the roadway transportation networks. The secondary audience includes academia in general and educators in particular. The Handbook can also be used as a reference by the general public and policymakers, but it is not written primarily for that audience.

Groundwater Lowering in Construction-A Practical Guide to Dewatering

Groundwater Lowering in Construction-A Practical Guide to Dewatering

Pat M. Cashman

Preference :

Many engineering projects, especially major ones, entail excavations into water-bearing soils. For all such excavations, appropriate system(s) for the management and control of the groundwater and surface water runoff should be planned before the start of each project. In practice, this can only be done with the knowledge of the ground and groundwater conditions likely to be encountered by reference to site investigation data. The control of groundwater (and also surface water runoff) is invariably categorized as “temporary works” and, therefore, is almost always regarded by the client and the engineer or architect as the sole responsibility of the contractor and of little or no concern of theirs. In many instances, this philosophy has been demonstrated to be shortsighted and ultimately costly to the client.

Port Management and Operations

Port Management and Operations

Burns, Maria G

Preference :

This book was written with the purpose of redefining the strategic role of global seaports in the present “Post-New Economy Era.” Ports are these remarkable human constructions that over centuries reflect the epitome of global evolution, economic growth, and innovation. As 70.8% of the global surface is covered by water, seaports reflect all sovereign nations’ political superiority and financial prosperity. Ports are the pillars of global economy, trade, and transport: 80% of global commodities are carried by water; over 9000 seaports, harbors and inland waterways, and multiple terminals per port facilitate world trade by serving over 50,000 oceangoing ships while generating over 30% of the global GDP on an annual basis. Historically, the rise and fall of empires has been associated with seaports, either through naval battles at times of war or through sea trade and transport at times of peace. In fact, superpowers and robust economies show their long-standing strength and dominance through seaports.

Deep Excavations in Soil

Deep Excavations in Soil

William H.K. Lee

Preference :

To an average person, deep excavation might conjure up thoughts of massive deep open cast gold mines. These can take dozens of years to excavate with more than a million tonnes of earth removed in one day. The largest of these goes down 700m, deep enough to accommodate a 230-floor tower without appearing above the original ground level, nearly as big as Burj Khalifa (829.8m) and more than Tokyo Skytree (634m) and Shanghai Tower (632m). Such deep excavations for mining rock ore are generally in undeveloped terrain. Engineering for deep open cast mines requires substantial input from rock mechanics engineers. Deep excavations in soil are generally not as deep as open cast mines and necessitate much more gentle slopes or retaining walls to hold up the sides.
