Re: CONCRETE: Combining Multiple Construction Tolerances

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Additive might be a certain distance off in one direction - say either in or out, and the sheet pile not exactly vertically - which sometimes happens. In single piles, this happens often.

I only have experience with poured in place caissons , and four inch tolerance is the norm, which means you will have to spec a wall that is fourteen inches thick, HTH



I'm really trying to get a feel for what's reasonable. I swear, if you search online for "sheet pile tolerance" you find precious little. Even specs for sheet pile published by, e.g., state DOTs and FHWA, say very little about tolerance.
