Calculation of secant piles retaining wall Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Further is presented the calculation of secant piles retaining wall for an 14 m depth excavation using the software SPW by GeoStru. The site is located in the center of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The project’s objective was the construction of a services and office building with height of 2B + G + 12. The height of Basement 1 is 5.06 m, while the height for Basement 2 is 2.98 m, and the overall depth of the excavation goes to -10.50 m. To support the soil during the excavation of the basement and to keep under control the groundwater level, there was a 4 sides tight enclosure of secant piles having a diameter of 60 cm, spacing distance of 45 cm and lengths between 17,15 m and 19,65 m with a double role - strength and sealing of the enclosure.

The site is located in the center of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The project’s objective was the construction of a services and office building with height of 2B + G + 12.
