Title: RE: steel sheet piles

Call Skyline Steel for domestic availability (973-428-6100). A572 (comes in 42, 50, 60 & 65 ksi) & A690 (corrosion resistant, 50 ksi). Material suppliers can give you all the physical properties you need. Ask Skyline or your West Coast ARBED supplier for a free copy of ARBED's design software (ProSheet), just as good as PileBuck's but doesn't give deflection and can only handle one line of walers.

Subject: steel sheet piles

Our office has never designed/detailed steel sheet pile shoring before, so I
have a few questions about this.

1.  It seems from my net searches that these are predominantly manufactured
in the UK/Europe.  I cannot find any US manufacturers.  Is this the norm?
Are there any local manufacturers typically used in So Cal?

2.  I cannot find recommended design moments for particular sections, only
the section modulus of the pile.  Is there a particular code sheet piles is
covered under?  Is there a usual grade of steel specified?  It seems to me
the design would need to address things like local buckling similar to cold
formed design, but I see no info on that.

Thank you in advance for your help
