Title: RE: last sheet pile question

Depends on the usage of the bulkhead.  Exposed concrete cap next to a walkway or building foundation you probably want something a little more stringent than 2H/240.

Is there a standard deflection limit for sheet piles?  What do all you
experienced sheet pile folks use as a rule.  Particularly in a cantilever
situation.  I'm planning on using 2 x the excavation depth / 240.
