Dr. Ir. Chandramohan P. V., President and Chandrasekhara Reddy M., Manager

Secant pile walls are being widely employed as retaining structures mostly in the basements. These are generally classified as bulkheads. They are tied back at the top or at a couple of levels depending on the height of retention. Rock anchors are employed for tie backs at the lower levels. This wall is a substitute for diaphragm walls, which requires mobilization of heavy equipment. But secant pile wall was contemplated in a new role at Sundilla. Cut off for the barrage was made in the form of a secant wall. The paper describes the construction details.
