Re: RE: USS Sheet Pile Design Manual

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Tripp:  The copy of the USS Sheet Pile Manual that came with the CalTrans 
Sheeting and Shoring Manual in 1999 has a FHWA logo on it and a disclaimer 
from them on the first page, so someone in FHWA may know  how to get a copy.  
Pile Buck ( does publish a modified version of it, but has 
filled it up with advertisements which, IMHO, detract from the overall 
clean-ness of the original.  Powell's Books in Portland Oregon may have used 
copies.  Keep looking, its worth the effort.  If you are looking for good 
books on geotechnical structures, cofferdams, sheeted excavations, etc.  
there are several old books worth finding.  Foundation Construction by Carson 
(1964) is excellent; it covers a lot of material with elegant illustrations 
and brief synopses of each.
